Thursday 2 June - Saturday 4 June 2016: The Idaho State Republican Convention convenes.

No later than 30 days before the State Convention, each Presidential candidate prepares a list of proposed National Convention delegates. National Convention delegates are elected according to the results of the primary.

... Delegates ... shall be obliged on the first ballot taken at the Republican National Convention to vote for the candidate who nominated them, provided any Delegates selected as representing the "uncommitted" choice shall be free to cast their vote for any candidate whose name has been placed in nomination before the Republican National Convention. In the event of death or withdrawal ... or release of Delegates by a candidate prior to the first ballot ... Delegates committed to such a candidate ... become uncommitted [Rule Article VI Sections 8 & 9].

 

 

SB 1049, introduced on 6 February 2015 by the State Affairs Committee, would create a Presidential Primary on the 2nd Tuesday in March (8 March 2016). The state's Presidential Primary was previously repealed in 2012.

SB 1066, introduced on 12 February 2015 by the State Affairs Committee, would create a Presidential Primary on the 2nd Tuesday in March (8 March 2016). This bill is similar to SB1049 but provides details on whether or not non-party members can participate in another Party's primary. The bill was signed into law by Governor Butch Otter (Republican) on Thursday, 9 April 2015.

9 February 2015: NPG of Idaho reports that the Central Committee of the Idaho Republican Party recently voted to select their Presidential delegates by primary rather than caucus should the state Legislature approve the 8 March 2016 primary.
