It is through these caucuses that candidates are chosen to represent a particular party in the upcoming election. Caucuses are held in a public place or in a private home that is open to the public. No invitation is required. Registered voters from the neighborhood simply attend and participate. At the caucuses, each party will select representatives to serve as the precinct committee and appoint delegates to the higher conventions/assemblies.
To participate in the precinct caucus, a voter must be a resident of the precinct for 30 days, be registered to vote 29 days before the caucus, and be affiliated with the political party for two months.
Once precinct caucuses are complete, the next step in this multi-level process are the county conventions/assemblies held in April and state conventions/assemblies held in May. Finally, the August primaries will determine which candidate will represent the respective parties on the November ballot.
