(Denver) – Voters wanting to participate in a precinct caucus must affiliate with a political party no later than Tuesday, January 19. Precinct caucuses are neighborhood meetings conducted by the two parties. This is the start of the process in which parties choose who will appear on the ballot for elected office in Colorado.
Under Colorado law, in order to vote in a precinct caucus, you must be a resident of your precinct for 30 days prior to the caucus, registered to vote, and affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican party for at least two months prior to the caucus.
The two parties will hold their 2010 precinct caucuses on March 16. Unaffiliated voters may not participate in party caucuses.
To affiliate with the Democratic or Republican party, register to vote or update your address, you may visit www.denvervotes.org and click on the “voter registration” link to download a form, or come in person to the Denver Elections Division at 3888 E. Mexico Ave.
