The Idaho Capital Sun is reporting the results from the Idaho 2022 primary elections, based on data from the Idaho Secretary of State’s Office. The results are a combined total of votes reported by precincts, in each county across the state. Some precincts take longer to count ballots and report their vote totals.

The election results will remain unofficial until they have been certified by top elections officials.

Idaho voters on Tuesday, May 17, cast their ballots for Republican and Democratic candidates in the races for governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, schools superintendent, Congress, the Idaho Legislature and other offices.

This year, once-in-a-decade redistricting gave Idaho a new legislative map. That means some sitting lawmakers in the Idaho Senate and House of Representatives will be running against each other, while others are running in new districts. Several current legislators are running for higher office.
