All About Caucus:

We hope to see you at Caucus Night, and hopefully this information will be useful to you.
The first step of the process to the 2018 election is Caucus which remains closed, meaning one must still be a registered Democrat to participate (and vote) in caucus. To participate in caucus one:

  • must be a resident of the precinct for thirty days.
  • must be registered to vote no later than twenty-nine days before the caucus
  • must be affiliated with the political party holding the caucus for at least two months as shown in the statewide voter registration system
    • except any registered elector who has attained the age of eighteen years
    • has become a naturalized citizen during the two months immediately preceding
      Why wait, affiliate with us now and participate in caucus.  Click here to update your registration.

Caucuses will be held on the first Tuesday in March and will start promptly at 7:00 pm March 6, 2018 7:00 PM to 9:00PM.  Check-in starts at 6:30 PM.
