Protecting our liberties is an ongoing job. It starts with becoming an informed citizen, communicating with elected officials and voting for those whose values are in line with yours. This year is an election year, we will be voting for a new governor, our legislature and more. You can make a huge impact by becoming an informed voter, holding our current officials and communicating with them. And by supporting liberty minded individuals that are running this year for office.
Become an informed citizen (Keep a watchful eye our our legislature)
Do you know what bills are being proposed and voted upon? It's easy to find out!
Visit the Legislative site on a regular basis - click here - and bookmark it, calendar it to remind yourself to look on a regular basis. Idaho session runs for only 3 months.
You can check Idaho's legislative website regularly to see the proposed bills that might impact your family directly. The status of each bill, resolution, proclamation, and memorials listed on this page are updated when the offices of the Secretary of the Senate and the Chief Clerk of the House publish the un-official daily journals and should not be deemed official. The official bill actions are located in the final journal, which are maintained by the offices of the Secretary of the Senate and the Chief Clerk of the House. The daily journals are published at the end of each legislative day.
You can also follow Health Freedom Idaho's facebook group as we regularly bring to light bills and provide plans of action in effectively communicating our concerns to the legislators.

Register to Vote & encourage others to do the same
Did you also know that you can’t vote if you are not REGISTERED to vote?
Remember whatever party you affiliate with when you register, THAT is the party ballot you will get in the primaries- just those running in your party. Don’t wait, register to vote today!https://apps.idahovotes.gov/OnlineVoterRegistration This is such an important piece in the fight for our freedoms!
Do you have to have a drivers license or ID to vote?
YES! You can register to vote by putting the lic # or last 4 of your ss # but you absolutely must have a dr lic or ID at the polls to vote AND a bill older than 30 days with you IF YOU REGISTER DURING CLOSED REGISTRATION (which is 45 days or before an election). If you register during open registration you do not have to have a bill in your name.
Do I have to affiliate with a party to vote?
Yes, depends. Idaho has 4 recognized parties with which voters may affiliate, or voters may be Unaffiliated:
Constitution, Democratic, Libertarian, Republican.
Here's the tricky part:
"The Democratic Party is allowing "Unaffiliated" voters and voters affiliated with all other political parties to participate in their Primary Election in 2018. However, only registered Republican voters will be allowed to vote in the Republican Primary."
Meaning: If you choose to be unaffiliated or if you choose to affiliate libertarian, constitutional or democratic for the Primary Election (May). You will be given a Democratic ballot or a Non-Partisan ballot (which entails mostly judges) when you go to vote. If you want to vote for ANY Republican candidates you must register as a Republican. (Any write ins on other ballots for Republican candidates will not be counted.)
To affiliate, for the upcoming election: the last day to change affiliation or become "Unaffiliated" is the last day a candidate may file for partisan political office prior to a primary election. This is one of the reasons it's important to register to vote BEFORE an election.
After the primary election a voter may change affiliation or become "Unaffiliated" at any time by filling out the Party Affiliation Form.
