Correction: Oct 18, 2017

In a front page report last week (“Giddings unfazed: State rep says she did all law required in move from Ada County,” 1A, Oct. 11) the Free Press reported an inaccurate date. As reported, Idaho County public records include two voter registration cards signed by Giddings. In fact, these are dated Jan. 17, 2015 and Nov. 3, 2015, and they reflect her changes of address that year. However, due to a Free Press error, the original article inaccurately stated the day the January 2015 card was signed. The Free Press regrets this error. — A.O.
