Republican Party precinct caucuses begin at 7 p.m. tonight in Craig, Moffat County and throughout the state.

Unlike a primary or other state caucuses around the country, participants will not be voting for local, state or national candidates tonight.

The purpose of the precinct caucuses is to hold a “community meeting” to decide on new precinct committee persons and to elect delegates to represent the precinct at the Moffat County Assembly March 24 at Sand Rock Elementary.

Although no candidates will be selected tonight, the Colorado Republican Party is conducting a statewide Presidential preference poll.

The results of the Presidential “straw poll” will be announced by the Colorado Republican Committee tonight after all of the counties have reported.

The Presidential preference poll is nonbinding and will in no way reflect which candidate the state party plans to support in November.

KC Hume, Moffat County Republican Party chairman, said he expects doors to open at the various precinct locations by at least 6:30 p.m.

In order to participate in tonight’s caucuses, you must be a registered Republican in your precinct.

“I really enjoy participating in this political process,” Hume said. “It’s fun to get together with like-minded individuals, who share similar viewpoints and values, and have a community meeting.”
