Precinct caucuses take place March 1

By Pat Sunderland


Precinct caucuses will be held Tuesday, March 1, at 7 p.m. Locations for both the Republican and Democratic parties can be found below. A map of precinct boundaries is located at www.deltacounty.com.

According to the League of Women Voters, you can vote at your caucus when you:

• Have been a resident of the precinct in which you live for 30 days,

• Have registered to vote no later than 29 days before the caucus, and

• Have been affiliated with the party holding the caucus at least two months before the caucus.

At the caucuses, delegates will be nominated for the Republican county assembly March 19 at the Delta Performing Arts Center and for the Democratic county assembly March 12 at Hotchkiss High School. If you are elected as a delegate at your caucus, you are expected to attend the assembly. If you are elected as an alternate, you are asked to attend in case delegates don't show. At the assembly, you will vote on various issues, including candidates for county office.

Each of the four Republican candidates for county commissioner, Districts 2 and 3, must receive 30 percent of the votes to move forward to the Republican primary. The other option is to petition on.

Delegates will also be selected for the state conventions.
