Upcoming Elections

November 3, 2020 General Election




Caucus Information

Each political party plans and holds a separate caucus in even numbered years to select delegates to the party's county convention.

  • A caucus is not an election.
  • There are no absentee ballots for a caucus.
  • The Auditor's Office has no official part in the organization and conduct of caucuses or the reporting of caucus results.
  • You must be registered to vote to participate in a caucus, but you may register or change your registration at the caucus site for your precinct.
  • It is best to contact the party of your choice for more information about the caucuses.
