Here’s what to expect from Colorado’s GOP caucuses
So if you’re a young Republican, new to Colorado, or are just thinking about participating in your first caucus this year, here’s what you need to know.
The precinct caucuses are about party building, and there’s much to be done at the local level during these neighborhood political gatherings. Registered Republican voters will help select their neighbors to positions of power in the party structure. They’ll help form the state’s Republican organization for the next two years by electing precinct captains, district captains, and other positions on up to convention delegates.
The caucuses are also a place where you can meet candidates for local and state office, and also just get a sense of what’s going on politically.
