To be eligible to participate in the Colorado Republican Precinct Caucus: 

  • You MUST be a Colorado registered voter, with Republican Party affiliation, by January 4th, 2016.  (2 months before the County Caucus) - CRS 1-3-101(1), AND
  • You MUST be a registered voter at your address by February 1st, 2016.  (29 days before the County Caucus) - CRS 1-3-101(1), AND
  • You MUST be eighteen years of age or a naturalized citizen by March 1st, 2016. (within the 2 months immediately preceding the County Caucus) - BCRC Bylaws Article XI: Section B, Part 2

If you have moved, but have not updated your voter registration, you may still caucus in the precinct for the address indicated on the current voter registration list.

The purpose of the Colorado Republican Precinct Caucuses is to elect the precinct committee person to represent the precinct as voting members of the Eagle County Republican Party Central Committee for the next two years, to select delegates and alternate delegates to represent the Republican voters of the precinct at the Eagle County Republican Assembly, to prepare a list of recommended election judges and to complete the appropriate paperwork for filing with the Republican Party representatives.

If one desires to be a delegate to the national Republican Convention, they must be a delegate or alternate through the complete process, from county to state to national.

The Colorado Republican Precinct Caucuses may also offer the opportunity to meet Republican candidates for local offices.

This year there will be no presidential straw poll at the 2016 Colorado Republican Precinct Caucuses.  The reason is a rule adopted in 2012 by the Republican National Committee which mandates binding delegates with the results of the straw poll.  Unfortunately, there is no provision for releasing delegates if a candidate withdraws from the race, which would not allow delegates to vote if bound by a straw poll.

I suggest we have 2 sites for the Caucus. I believe the turnout will be higher if there is an up valley site and a down valley site for caucus.
How can we get the word out? Everyone I speak to, is unaware of the date.
