Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter said that the state of Idaho´s official website, idaho.gov, has an updated appearance and greatly improved functionality.
“We want to make sure your interaction with state government is as pleasant as possible,” Governor Otter said. “Being able to access the information you need, no matter what device you use, is an important step for the future. I´m excited to announce this new site and that no taxpayer dollars were used for its redesign.”
Highlights of the redesigned site include new content for the topics of marriage, birth, death and divorce, as well as the new categories of Taxes & Money, and Driving. The additions were created based on site analytics and user testing.
Key features include the site´s topical navigation, so citizens do not need to know which state agency is responsible for state finances or any other topic, and a mobile-friendly design. The touch-friendly site is designed for seamless use on tablets, smart phones and desktops, as part of Idaho´s ongoing efforts to ensure its online resources are compatible with new mobile devices.
