Caucus 2010

Colorado's March 16 precinct caucus details are now available for Democrats and Republicans in Denver.

In ordinary years (i.e. years other than 2008), attendance is usually around 1% of registered political party members. The caucuses play a pivotal role in determining who will be nominated from the major political parties. About nineteen of twenty partisan elected officials make it onto the ballot that way (the remain petition their way onto a partisan primary election ballot). These biannual events are also the gateway to positions within each of the two major political parties.
