Tuesday was primary day in Idaho and the voting process was a little different this year. Voters had to show photo ID at the polls and also designate party registration.
   
At polling locations across Idaho, people had to declare whether they are registered republicans or not.

The changes came after a new law went into effect last year preventing people from voting outside of their party in primary elections.

Only registered Republican voters are allowed to vote in the Republican Primary.

Members of the Democratic, Republican, Constitution or Libertarian Parties and those who do not affiliate with any party will be permitted to vote the Democratic Ballot if they so choose.

Those not registered with a party could register on Election Day.
