2022 Idaho Statewide Candidates for Office – Election Day – Primaries Only

By • May 17, 2022

The primary election is today.

Polls will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in your time zone. Remember that Idaho has two time zones, so polling doesn’t close until 8:00 p.m. whether you are in Mountain Time or Pacific Time. Additionally, results will not be given until after 9:00 p.m. MT.

There are two statewide races that are “open races.” Several statewide offices have multiple candidates for primary races while two offices do not have a race but their names have been included here so that readers do not wonder why a particular office is not listed.

Please note that this list will NOT include Congressional races.

The following list is of all candidates from any party who will be running in the primary election. 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. Candidates’ websites and social media sites are also posted. An incumbent, if applicable, will also be noted as such. Idaho Dispatch has also posted links to interviews with candidates who have agreed to do an interview with us. We are doing our best to reach all statewide candidates for an interview.

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.
