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 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. Our goal is to give the public an unbiased platform to hear the views of congressional candidates on the ballot. We do not support or oppose political parties or candidates.
