2010 Election

It seems early to be thinking about elections this year, but the early stages of candidate selection are in full force. Candidates are vying for a chance to run for governor, U.S. Congress, and positions in the state legislature to name a few.

The Colorado caucus for candidate selection is scheduled to take place on March 16, 2010 this year. The Democratic and Republican Parties will both hold a caucus to poll public preference for their gubernatorial and other candidates. According to state law (CRS 1-3-101):
"In order to vote at any precinct caucus, assembly, or convention of a political party, the elector shall be a resident of the precinct for thirty days, shall have registered to vote no later than twenty-nine days before the caucus, assembly, or convention, and shall be affiliated with the political party holding the caucus, assembly, or convention for at least two months."
Voters who want to participate in their local caucus need to register to vote and declare their party affiliation before January 15th.

Why isn't the title of this changed to Colorado Caucuses and the content slightly edited. People move to Colorado and want to understand our unique caucus-assembly system, this would be a good resource, but few would find it with this title.

Would you also please consider including a link to http://www.COCaucus.org.

Thanks. If you have any questions, please call me at (303)861-1447 or John@JohnWren.com.

Thanks.
