What Did Lawmakers Do With Elections This Year?
Election security and voter integrity have been at the top of lawmakers’ minds for several years, and this session was no different. Secretary of State Phil McGrane joined the show on Friday to run through which bills passed, which failed, and what voters need to know when they head to the polls.
Lawmakers passed a bill this year to move Idaho’s presidential primary, but declined a bill that would have reincorporated certain steps of the process into law for the new date. Without those procedures, there is no legal mechanism for Idaho to hold a presidential primary in 2024.
