Colorado’s registered Republicans and Democrats, don’t forget that tomorrow evening is caucus time – your chance to pick a Presidential candidate, make your voice heard, and elect the delegates to the county and state assembly. Looks like there will be unusually high interest in 2008. The Denver Post has the basic information here:
Colorado voters registered as Democrats or Republicans can participate in Tuesday’s party caucuses, as long as they were registered before Dec. 5. Here’s how:
Process: At a caucus, state political parties hold presidential preference polls and conduct other party business. Democrats require a candidate to receive at least 15 percent of the available votes. Republicans hold a straight vote.
Schedule: Caucuses are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Tuesday, but voters are urged to arrive early. Presidential preference polls are likely to be the first order of business.
Sites: Caucuses are held around the state. To find yours, first you need to know your precinct. To find your precinct, call your county clerk or check the secretary-of-state website for a precinct number to input at state party websites.
