Caucuses coming soon
Our great state of Colorado will be playing a crucial role in the 2012 presidential election. Next week, with the Republican precinct caucuses on Tuesday, all eyes will be on Colorado. The Democratic precinct caucuses will be held the following month, on March 6. We want to be sure to avoid confusion about these different dates. Following is information on the two sets of caucuses.
The 2012 Pitkin County Republican Precinct Caucuses will be held on Tuesday at Aspen High School. Doors open at 6 p.m. for check-in and refreshments. The caucuses will begin at 7 p.m. (check-in will close at that time). The Republican precinct caucuses will feature a presidential preference poll for the Republican nominee. In addition, precinct leaders will be chosen as well as delegates and alternates to the County Assembly on Feb. 29, the first step in the selection of delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention. To avoid lines at caucus check-in, we encourage preregistration by going to http://www.caucus.cologop.org. For more information, please contact Frieda Wallison at email@example.com.
The 2012 Pitkin County Democratic Caucuses (except for Precinct 6) will be held at 6 p.m. on March 6 at Aspen High School for registration and potluck. Precinct 6 will be caucusing at the Woody Creek Store. The caucuses will begin at 7 p.m. Because President Obama is running unopposed, there will not be competitive Democratic caucuses. However, the Democratic Precinct Caucuses are the first step in the delegate-selection process for the Democratic National Convention.

Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, we urge you to get involved and attend your precinct caucuses.
