County Caucus 2014 – What is Caucus?

What is Caucus?

In Colorado, the process of nominating candidates for elective office begins with precinct caucuses organized by the major political parties.

Precinct caucuses are local neighborhood meetings of registered voters held every general election year.  The Broomfield County Republican Caucus will take place on Tuesday, March 4th, 2014 from 7PM to 9PM at Broomfield High School, 1 Eagle Way in Broomfield.

On the night of the Broomfield County Republican Caucus, the following “meetings” will be held:

  • The main tent meeting is conducted, typically including a preference poll for Governor or President.
  • Precinct caucus meetings are held for each of the 38 county precincts.  In the precinct caucus meetings, local political party leaders (Precinct Committee Persons – PCPs) are selected, and the delegates and alternates are elected to the County Assembly. Those elected then move on to their respective delegate group meetings.
  • Delegate group meetings are held, where the  County delegates and alternates elected at the  precinct caucus meetings are nominated/elected to the Higher Assemblies, and State Assembly.

Delegates chosen at Broomfield County Caucus (via the meetings described above) will vote in later political party assemblies to designate partisan candidates to the primary election ballot for U.S. Congress, the state legislature, and other district and county offices.  Delegates to State and Congressional district assemblies will also vote on political party platforms.  In presidential election years, delegates to State and Congressional district assemblies also vote to elect delegates to national political conventions.

For 2014, the Broomfield County Republican Committee will elect delegates that select the Republican Primary Candidates for US Congressional District 2, House District 33, and Judicial District 17.  State delegates will attend the State Assembly and select the Republican Primary Candidates for Colorado Governor and US Senator.
