While the enthusiasm that beckons its arrival hardly reaches the level of, say, Super Bowl Sunday, the Republican Caucus is nevertheless a big deal.
Just ask all those Republican presidential candidates.
Anyway, if you're a registered Republican, today is the day. Read on for some helpful tips, courtesy of Secretary of State Scott Gessler:
You're likely hearing quite a bit on the national and state news about Colorado and its caucuses today. Colorado is one of the few states that use a caucus system to select its presidential candidates and it's a great way for our citizens to engage in the process.
This evening beginning at 7:00 p.m., registered Republican voters can attend and participate in their neighborhood caucus to cast their straw poll ballot for president and elect delegates to the county and state assemblies. Republicans wishing to participate in their caucus can find their location by clicking here.
Meanwhile, Colorado Democrats will hold their caucuses on Tuesday, March 6, also at 7:00 p.m. Registered Democrat voters can learn more about their caucuses by clicking here.
Whether this is your tenth or your first caucus, consider getting involved in the process. Your neighbors and party officials are welcoming and willing to teach you about the process.
Thanks, in advance, for your interest and civic engagement. See you at the caucuses!
