Utah Neighborhood Elections – Caucus Instructions

This post will tell you when the Republican Neighborhood Election (Caucus) is, how to find where it’s held, how to pre-register, what a caucus neighborhood election is, how it works, how the voting is to be conducted.

On Thursday evening, March 20, 2014 at 7 PM Utah will hold its Republican Caucus.  This is your opportunity to attend and to let your voice be heard in your neighborhood. Many of the delegates you elected in 2012 have worked very hard to make improvements so that the evening will go more smoothly and quickly and so that more can be involved.  I’m one of those delegates.  We want to preserve this system because it is truly grassroots.
