UPDATE 2/3/16: Great meeting tonight! SIXTY SIX people (including State Representative Singer and baby Gwendolyn) showed up tonight to learn about Caucus, coming up on March 1. We will have Marilyn’s slides posted here (there will be a “got caucus” widget on the left side of this page) in the coming days and if you have any questions about Caucus, post them LAD’s facebook page, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Many thanks to John Cooper from the Hillary campaign and Jason Sherry from the Bernie campaign, who spoke for their candidates. Very special thanks to those of you who stepped up to volunteer at Caucus or who are interested in becoming Precinct Leaders (Longmont has many “orphan precincts”). And heartfelt thanks to the Longmont Democratic Community — old friends and new ones — an inspiring group of folks! Let’s continue to grow what we’ve started.
CAUCUS IS MARCH 1, 2016: YOU MUST BE AFFILIATED WITH THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY by now in order to participate in Caucus. You also must have registered to vote as residing in the precinct where you wish to attend caucus by FEBRUARY 1, 2016. SPECIAL NOTE: FIRST-TIME VOTERS must register and affiliate no later than FEBRUARY 1, 2016 in order to participate in caucus. Verify and/or update your voter information here.
The Colorado Caucus is our “Primary”. If you feel strongly about your choice for a presidential candidate, Caucus is your chance to make your vote count! It’s only a couple of hours of your time and a great way to get your participation jump started, to vote, and possibly become a delegate.
Confused about how Caucus works and how to get involved?: Come to our NEXT Longmont Area Democrats meeting Wednesday, February 3rd, 6:30pm, Front Range Community College, 2121 Miller Drive, Classroom Building (east side of Miller Drive), Community Room — and get your questions answered! This is a great opportunity to get information BEFORE Caucus on March 1st! We’ll help you find your precinct and your Caucus location.
IN ADDITION: Representatives from each Presidential campaign will be at the meeting to talk about their candidates and answer questions.
PLUS, TAMALES! (to take home with you): Delicious, fresh, homemade Red or Green Chili, and NOW VEGGIE TAMALES! $7.50 for a 6-pack, $15 for a 12-pack (tamales available at 6:15pm). We’d like to know how many to have on hand, so please email us to reserve yours!
