STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS09707 This legislation would allow a political party to opt out of the presidential preference primary if proper notice is given to the Secretary of State. Various parties' rules conflict with Idaho's presidential preference primary procedures and this legislation enables the party to follow their rules without the counties incurring ballot printing expenses. FISCAL NOTE No impact to the general fund, however counties should experience a decrease in ballot printing costs.
