Idaho Party Affiliation Voting Issues

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Ten people were appointed to Idaho commissions or boards as Democrats or independents but voted as Republicans in the first-ever closed primary on March 15.

The 2012 primary marked the first time in Idaho when a voter's party choice became a public record.
