Party Affiliation Deadline Nearing

Secretary of State Ben Ysursa on Monday reminded voters who may wish to change their Democratic, Libertarian or Constitution party affiliation to vote in the May 20 Republican primary that they have just two working weeks to do so. The March 14 deadline coincides with the end of the two-week filing period for candidates for county, legislative, statewide and federal office. Ysursa’s news release came Monday morning, as the candidate filing period opened. ... Of Idaho’s 742,000 registered voters, 440,000 remain unaffiliated after Idaho’s first closed primary was held in 2012 after the Idaho Republican Party won a federal lawsuit over the objections of Otter and Ysursa/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman.
