Catch the biggest and best primary and general election debates right here at Idaho Public Television. Check out our archive and view some of the significant debates from recent years.
The Idaho Debates is a collaborative effort among the Idaho Press Club, Boise State University's School of Public Service, University of Idaho's McClure Center, Idaho State University's Department of Political Science, League of Women Voters' Voter Education Fund, and Idaho Public Television.
Based upon the 1998 U.S. Supreme Court decision, "Arkansas vs Forbes," the partners have established "reasonable" and "viewpoint-neutral" criteria for participation in these statewide debates, and will apply those criteria consistently to determine if a candidate is conducting an active campaign. The following letter went out to each candidate.
Funding for the Idaho Debates is provided by the Idaho Public Television Endowment.
- Television: Watch the debates live on Idaho Public Television or on our YouTube page
