From the Chairman's Desk-January 19, 2016

Are You Ready To... Caucus!

Announcing Clark County Caucus locations!  February 20th is the Republican caucus where we will elect 749 delegates to the county convention to be held March 12th.  We will also discuss the purpose and principles of the party (the party platform).   The caucus is conducted in numerous locations around the county simultaneously.  Look here for your precinct’s specific caucus location.  The meeting is conducted by your Precinct Committee Officer who lives in your neighborhood.  Go to www.myvote.wa.gov/ if you don’t have your precinct number.  Or give us a call and we’ll find it for you: 360-695-1609.

Would you like to know what the caucus is or how to be an effective participant?  We repeat our caucus training each Thursday evening, 7pm, at Republican headquarters, 9401 NE Covington Rd.  The same presentation will also be offered Saturday mornings in February.  We are doing this for you because grassroots voices need to be heard and neighbor needs to meet neighbor.  We want this to be the best caucus ever!  These trainings have been very well attended.  Whether or not you have ever been to caucus you will probably appreciate this training/orientation.
