Idaho is holding its first presidential caucus, which is opened to registered Republican voters.
Idaho has an open caucus and the state with a strong libertarian bent is believed to favor Texas Congressman Ron Paul though Mitt Romney is also expected to do well here cashing on the sizable Mormon population.
Same-day voter registration is allowed in the state. The caucuses will begin at 7 p.m. and for most counties, doors will open at 6:00 p.m. or earlier. The voters should bring any of the government-issued identity cards to vote.
Idaho caucus voting continues in rounds, eliminating lowest vote getting candidate after each round, and continue until a clear winner emerges with more than 50 percent of the country's total votes.
If any candidate wins more than 50 percent of the 32 delegates, he is allocated all 32 delegates. Otherwise, delegates are allocated based on the total of county delegates won by each candidate.
