Getting to Know the Candidates
The primary provides a stage for the free and open exchange of ideas and opinions, which is fundamental to American democracy. By paying attention during the campaign, voters get the opportunity to learn about each candidate and their positions on the topics that matter the most to them.
The primary plays a key role in shaping the final platforms of each candidate heading towards the November election.
Perhaps the most important reason of all to vote in a primary is that this early cycle provides a critical avenue through which Idahoans can take part in the process of selecting their own leaders.
