Less than a week before the Idaho Democratic Presidential Caucus on Thursday, May 23, the Idaho Democratic Party is energized and ready to engage voters in an important democratic process.

All registered Democratic and unaffiliated voters who haven’t participated in another party’s nominating process are invited to participate. County polling locations will be open from 5 to 8 p.m. local time. Participants will have the opportunity to vote for Idaho’s Democratic presidential nominee and to elect delegates to the Idaho Democratic State Convention.

The candidates contending for the nomination are Joe Biden, Dean Phillips, Jason Palmer, Marianne Williamson, David Olscamp, and Armando Perez-Serrato.

“Idaho Democrats wanted to combine our presidential nomination process with the state primary election, but GOP politicians refused to enact legislation making this possible. Forced to undertake a caucus, we worked to make it as accessible as possible,” remarked Idaho Democratic Party Chair Lauren Necochea.

“Caucus-goers won’t have to listen to presentations, remain at the site for hours, or be locked out if they don’t arrive when voting starts. Voters will check in, cast their ballot, and go on their way. We made absentee ballots available to voters who needed this option due to military service, disability, illness, work, childcare obligations, school, transportation challenges, or other reasons.”

Expressing excitement for the upcoming caucus, Necochea added, “I am thrilled for Democrats to come together, shape the future of our nation, and celebrate the strength of the Idaho Democratic Party.”

Caucus results will be released after all caucus locations across the state are closed. Staff will compile absentee ballots and the results of the in-person voting by county, which will be released simultaneously.

Members of the press must RSVP to request credentials for coverage of the caucus here.

Voters are encouraged to visit to find their polling location and gather additional information.
