On November 30, a status conference was held in Idaho Republican Party v Ysursa, the federal case over whether the Constitution protects the Republican Party’s desire to have a primary in which only party members may vote. Currently, Idaho does not have registration by party. On primary day, any voter is free to vote in any party’s primary.
By January 15, the Republican Party will present a summary of the evidence it will be presenting at the upcoming trial. This will include a copy of the expert report by one of the party’s witnesses, Michael Munger, who is a professor of political science and an expert in political parties. Then, there will be another status conference on January 26 to set the details for the upcoming trial.
