Women Running in Idaho
Significance of State
The last time Idaho elected a Democrat to the Senate was in 1974. This election cycle, however, brings a strong Democratic wind blowing from Plummer, ID, where two-time House rep and 2018 Democratic gubernatorial candidate Paulette Jordan seeks to unseat the 77-year-old Republican incumbent. In a move to adjust the voting process to a safer one this year, Idaho has moved to an entirely vote-by-mail system. The last day to request a mail-in ballot for the June 2 primary is May 19, and all ballots must be returned to the clerk’s office by 8 p.m on Tuesday, June 2.
