Idaho: Restrictions to Idaho Ballot Measures Move Forward on Party-Line Vote

Thu, Mar 7 2013 — Source: Boise Weekly

In a party-line vote this morning [ Wednesday, 6 March], the Republican majority of the State Senate Affairs Committee approved a bill that would alter the way Idaho initiatives are put on general election ballots.

Traditionally, petitions have required a percentage of the state’s registered voters, but Senate Bill 1108 would parse that process out by requiring 6 percent of voters from at least 18 legislative districts across the state.
