Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the subsequent social distancing recommendations by the Center for Disease Control, this event has been cancelled. The IDP is still planning for a state convention and is exploring alternatives for delegate selection. However, this is not a certainty. More information will be provided when it becomes available. For now, stay tuned and stay safe.
The Idaho Primary Election is now over. The primary election determined the percentage of delegates allocated to each presidential candidate competing for votes in Idaho. Now, it is time for each county to select delegates. The elected delegates and alternates attend the 2020 Idaho State Nominating Convention. The convention takes place in Boise ID on June 6. This selection process is known as a Delegate Caucus.
This local gathering of Democrats will determine who represents Kootenai County at the State Convention. If you are a registered Democrat in Kootenai County, you are eligible to stand for election as a county delegate. Our 2020 Presidential Delegate Caucus takes place on April 4, 2020, at 1 PM at the Harding Family Center in Coeur d’Alene. Please sign up early. On caucus day, the registered Democrats in attendance will select our county’s delegates. Delegates attending the state convention are then eligible for election to serve as Idaho state delegates to the National Convention.
In light of the unprecedented health crisis facing our country, the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) announced today (April 2, 2020) that the 2020 Democratic National Convention will now be held the week of August 17 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, providing convention planners more time to determine the most appropriate structure for this historic event.
The Idaho Democrats have created a state-wide form to help track attendance at the county delegate caucuses throughout the state. Therefore, if you plan to attend our caucus, please register. Completing the Selection Caucus Registration Form helps us determine how many people will attend. Once you open the form, scroll down until you see the event details for the Kootenai County Caucus. Now, use the dropdown list to indicate how many people will attend including yourself. Finally, scroll to the bottom of the form and click on the REGISTER button. Thanks.
