We’re very encouraged the Idaho Legislature wants to increase voter participation.
Yet why pick such a costly way of doing it?
The bill for this special election? Up to $2 million.
Remember four years ago when Idaho taxpayers were forced to pay $100,000 in legal fees after the state GOP closed its primary? You probably also remember the GOP closed its primary to limit voter participation.
Here’s a suggestion: open the primary and use that $2 million to educate our children and fix our roads.
Done and done.
