For my first real attempt at a lightning component, I am trying to make a related list that can be modified by different filters based on what you would like to see. I have it mostly working as intented, but I cannot seem to correctly query for related records, and am stuck either getting all of the records that meet my filter, or none.

I am attempting to use force:hasRecordId, which seems like it would make things quite simple, but I cannot seem to get it to work correctly even with the lightning component itself, as I try to display the recordId and get a blank component.

Code is below, any help is appreciated.

Component `

<lightning:card iconName="custom:custom84" title="Open Backlog Items" class="slds-is-relative">
    <div class="slds-p-left_medium slds-p-right_medium">
        <ul class="slds-list_vertical slds-has-dividers_top-space">
            <aura:if isTrue="{!v.openBacklogItems.length &gt; 0}">
                <aura:iteration items="{!v.openBacklogItems}" var="item">
                    <li class="slds-list__item">
                      <a href="{!'/lightning/r/BackLogItem__c/'+ item.Id + '/view'}" target="_blank">{! item.Name }</a>
                      Status :
                      <ui:outputRichText aura:id = 'desc' value = '{!item.Description__c}'/>
                <aura:set attribute="else">
                    <li class="slds-list__item">
                        <h3 class="slds-text-medium">{!recordID}</h3>



JS Controller

    getOpenBacklogItems : function(component, event, helper) {
        var action = component.get("c.getRelatedBacklogItems");
            recordID : component.get("v.recordID")
        action.setCallback(this, function(response){
            var relatedIssues = response.getReturnValue();
            component.set("v.openBacklogItems", relatedIssues);

Apex Controller

public with sharing class RelatedBacklogItemsController {

    public static List<BacklogItem__c> getRelatedBacklogItems(ID recordID){
        //TODO: Figure out how to filter by application record page being viewed
        return [SELECT Id, Name, Description__c, Level_of_Effort__c, Piority__c, Status__c FROM BacklogItem__c WHERE Status__c != 'Completed' AND Status__c != 'Rejected' AND Application__c = :recordID ORDER BY Status__c];

I would think that this should query by application based on the record page we are looking at, but the query always returns nothing, and when I attempt to display recordId on the component using {!recordId} I am left with a blank component. I am guessing I am missing something quite simple, but have not been able to figure it out to this point.

Case Sensitivity: recordId and not recordID.

Pay attention to the value provider: {!v.XXX}

<li class="slds-list__item">
     <h3 class="slds-text-medium">{!v.recordId}</h3>
