Primary: Idaho is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Parties decide who may vote. The Democratic Party allows unaffiliated voters to vote in their primary. The Republican Party allows only voters registered with their party. Unaffiliated voters can choose to affiliate with a party on election day, but they will be bound to that party at the next election as well.[1]

Voter registration: Voters had to register to vote in the primary by either April 25, 2014 (if mailing in registration or registering at an agency) or on election day (must bring proof of residence). For the general election, the voter registration deadline was October 10, 2014.[2]
