We still caucus? Yes, and it's coming up soon

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- Colorado voters decided to get rid of caucuses in 2016, but that was just for presidential races.

These meetings will be held at the precinct level on March 6. They allow for the flow of information to be debated in neighborhoods across the state.

"We can talk about all the candidates and who is supporting whom, so we get a better sense of who we want to represent us," said JoLynn Phillips, the Mesa County Democrats executive committee member.

With a wide-open governor's race, delegates selected at these meetings will decide who square off with those who successfully petition onto their party primary's.

Primaries are now open to independents, too, but these caucuses are strictly party business.

"Precinct people are an integral part of voting when there are issues that need taken care of," said Deborah Gaul, the secretary for the Mesa County Republicans. "Raise your hand and volunteer to get involved."

If you wish to take part in the Republican or Democratic caucus, you have to have been registered with the party already. To find out your caucus location, click the link below for your party.
