State Party Rules from the Idaho Republican Party.
30 March 2023: H 138 was signed into law by Governor Brad Little (Republican). HB 138 was thought to consolidate the presidential primary with the state Primary so that all primary elections are held on the 3rd Tuesday in May ... but it does not specifically add a Presidential Primary to the state primary on the 3rd Tuesday in May so it effectively eliminates the Presidential Primary. [Idaho Statutes Title 34 Chapter 1. 34-102.]
circa 19 April 2023: The Idaho legislature adjourned without restoring the Idaho presidential primary.
5 July 2023: Presidential Caucus: A Special Message from Chairwoman Moon from the Idaho Republican Party.

Idaho Rules for Selection of Delegates to the National Convention and State Convention. Article V. Sections 1, 15(a).]
Sunday 3 March - Wednesday 15 May 2024 (presumably): The Regional Nominating Committee convenes (date not set).
Each Presidential candidate prepares a list of proposed National Convention delegates. 80% (29 × 0.8 = 23) of the delegates are selected from the list provided by the candidate and 20% (29 × 0.2 = 6) by the Regional Nominating Committee. The 3 RNC Delegates (National Committee Man, National Committee Woman, and Chair of the Party) will also go to the convention. In either case, National Convention delegates are apportioned according to the results of the Presidential Caucus.
... 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 2-4].
A decision concerning the alternative Presidential Preference Convention to the cancelled state primary was made at the Summer Meeting (and documents) on 23-24 June 2023.
Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.
