County Democratic Party to hold caucuses Tuesday
Democratic precinct caucuses are scheduled for Tuesday, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at 16 different locations throughout Pitkin County.
According to Camilla Auger, chairperson of the Pitkin County Democratic Party, precinct caucuses are the “most direct democratic” functions held in the country. Conducted by both the nation’s two major political parties, caucuses enable registered voters to address issues that may later be brought to the two parties’ respective national conventions.
The caucuses are actual meetings at which citizens discuss issues, elect delegates for the Pitkin County Assembly (May 9) and vote on issues that the participants would like to see addressed at higher-levels of party governance.
Pitkin County is divided into 16 precincts, and each will hold a Democratic Party caucus Tuesday night. They will take place at the following locations:
Precinct 1, chaired by Tom McCabe (925-1644) and Janet Garwood (920-0025), will be held at the courthouse conference room, 530 E.
