Meet Our Party


The Idaho GOP is responsible for putting together and executing a Victory Plan that includes working to identify Republican voters and getting them to the polls, Get-out-the-Vote, and Election Day operations.

The Idaho Republican Party hires field staff around the state to recruit volunteers and manage campaign activity throughout the State. We need to identify Republican voters and ensure they get to the polls in both May for the primary election and November for the general election.

We work to register new Republicans to vote and conduct an aggressive Absentee Ballot Program to ensure all Republican voices are heard.

The Idaho GOP is the only constant in a world of variables for every new GOP candidate in the state of Idaho. We provide the infrastructure and resources for a well executed grassroots movement – which is the only way to guarantee victory for GOP candidates at all levels.

On Election Day the Idaho Republican Party manages phone banks, and trains and places poll watchers in key locations who field complaints of voter fraud and intimidation. An investment in the Idaho GOP never stops paying dividends, so be sure to make a donation today.
