Super Tuesday – How to participate in the Colorado Caucus

First, what is a caucus:

votePrimaries and caucuses are two very different methods of accomplishing the same basic thing. Simply put, they are both a means for each political party to let vote­rs nationwide select their party’s presidential nominee by selecting delegates (representatives of party members in each state) to send to the party’s national convention.

­ At each party’s national convention (held the summer before the presidential election), the party selects a presidential nominee based on how party delegates at the convention vote. The Republican and Democratic parties in each state select delegates based on either caucuses or a primary vote in that state — the delegates are sent to represent voters in the state.

Who can go? 

In order to participate, you must have registered with the party you identify with by Jan. 4. If you have moved recently, you must have updated your voter registration by Feb. 1.

If you don’t meet those requirements, then you can’t attend.
