Letter: Decide on a Democrat

The Pitkin County Democratic Party will hold its presidential preference caucus Tuesday at the Aspen High School cafeteria/commons. This will be our only opportunity to express a choice in the presidential nominating process. There will be a primary in Colorado on June 28, but that primary will not include presidential preference.

We will be serving food and beverages starting at 6 p.m. Doors will open and check-in will begin at 6 p.m. Parking at the school campus is extremely limited, so if you are able to carpool, take the bus, walk, or ride your bike; that would be terrific!

If you don’t know your elections precinct, go to http://www.govotecolorado.com to find out. It takes just a few seconds! We also will have an information desk with voter-eligibility and precinct information. If you were a registered Pitkin County Democrat by Jan. 4, you are eligible to vote in this caucus under state rules.

The voting process will begin promptly at 7 p.m. You must be in line to enter the building by 7 p.m. to vote in the election. This is a wonderful opportunity to take part in a small-town, neighbor-to-neighbor political process that comes around only once every four years. We hope to see you there!

Howie Wallach

Chairman, Pitkin County Democratic Party
