Question: Should Idaho Close Party Primaries?

Issue: GOP may endorse closed primaries: Keeping Democratic voters out of primary races would require a change in state law/Idaho Statesman

DFO: This is a horrible idea, if for no other reason than the fact that many races feature only Repub candidates -- for example, the three District 3 legislative races and one Kootenai County commissioner race. If the primaries are closed, only Republicans will have the opportunity to decide who represents them in races like this.

Question: Would you support closed primaries to prevent Idaho Democrats from voting in Republican races?
