2022 Idaho Statewide Candidates for Office as of 10/11/2021 – Primaries Only

By • October 11, 2021

The primary elections are less than one year away, and candidates are already announcing they are running for office in Idaho.

With at least two open races already, several statewide offices are expected to have multiple candidates. Please note that this list will NOT include Congressional races. Idaho Dispatch will have a separate article for Congressional candidates.

The following list is of all candidates from any party who will be running in the primary election next year. Unaffiliated and Independent candidates will NOT be listed here because those candidates only run in the general election. Candidates will also not be listed if they do not yet have a primary opponent.

Candidates will be listed alphabetically by last name and by their political party until primaries are completed. Then, their websites and social media sites will be posted. An incumbent, if applicable, will also be noted as such. Some candidates have officially announced, while others have simply filed a C1 which allows a candidate to raise money for a potential campaign.

Note: Advertising is a part of all Idaho Dispatch articles. Ads appearing in this article do NOT denote an endorsement of any candidate. The ads are placed based on the number of paragraphs in the article.

If you notice that your candidate has information available that we do not have, please send the information to info@idahodispatch.com. Social media sites are pulled from a candidate’s website.
