Representatives of the Delta County Republican and Democratic parties say they are pleased with the level of participation in the county caucuses held March 6.
Roger Bentley, chairman of the Delta County Republican Party, said about 150 party members gathered in two locations.
Precinct caucuses -- the first step in the process for selecting party delegates, endorsing candidates and setting party platforms -- take place across the state Tuesday, March 6.
Precinct caucuses are meetings of registered electors within the Republican and Democratic parties.
On March 1, Bernie Sanders was the choice among caucus voters in Crawford, Paonia and Hotchkiss, garnering 24 delegates compared to six for Hillary Clinton.
Anne Every, caucus coordinator for Delta County since 2010, said turnout numbers in Paonia precincts 18, 19 and 20 were "staggering."
Precinct caucuses will be held Tuesday, March 1, at 7 p.m. Participation is open to registered voters who have been a resident of the precinct for 30 days, and who have been affiliated with the party holding the caucus at least two months before the caucus.
