Idaho Caucus Makes History

The Waking the Sleeping Giant team filmed Western Tuesday's action in downtown Boise, Idaho, documenting the largest caucus in U.S. history. Thousands of voters waited in line for several hours to vote in the Democratic caucus. Our crew captured an awakening in Idaho, as citizens caucused throughout one of the most conservative states in the nation. Results were not available until early Wednesday morning!

The caucus was full of first-time voters and caucus participants. More than one person we interviewed spoke about the potential impact at the state and local level that this historic turnout could signal for Idaho, as more people become active voters. The Sleeping Giant Wakes!
