FAQ: Republican Precinct Caucus InformationWhen is the Republican Precinct Caucus?-Colorado Republican Precinct caucuses will be held throughout the state on the first Tuesday in February – on February 7, 2012 – beginning promptly at 7:00 pm. We recommend that participants arrive at their designated Precinct Caucus location no later than 6:30 pm to allow for registration and check-in.
What is a Precinct Caucus?-Precinct Caucuses are held every two years, and are essentially neighborhood meetings of the registered Republican electors who live in the same precinct. The primary purposes of the Precinct Caucus are to elect local representatives of the Republican Party (called “precinct committeepersons”) and to select and delegates to political party assemblies that will then designate Republican candidates to the Primary Election ballot. In Presidential Election years, eligible Precinct Caucus voters also participate in a non-binding Presidential Preference Poll.
Am I eligible to vote in the Republican precinct caucus?-You must be a registered Colorado voter, affiliated with the Republican Party no later than December 7, 2011 (at least two months prior to the Precinct Caucus).
-You must also have been a resident of your precinct for at least thirty (30) days. If you moved into the precinct or registered to vote less than thirty days prior to the Precinct Caucuses, you must attend the precinct caucus that corresponds to your prior address, but you may be ineligible to be elected as a delegate or precinct committeeperson.
-For key dates and additional information, please.
Where is my precinct caucus?-Most Precinct Caucus meetings are held in local schools, community meeting rooms, churches, and sometimes in private homes that are ADA-accessible. The Precinct Caucus location for your neighborhood is set by your local county Republican Party, and can be found on our Colorado Republican Caucus Assembly System website found at
What happens at a precinct caucus?
-At every Precinct Caucus, the basic agenda is as follows:
-Elect a chairman and secretary to help run the caucus meeting that night;
-Vote in the Presidential Preference Poll, and tally and announce the results to caucus participants;
– Elect two precinct committeepersons who will serve as local officers of the Republican Party and help coordinate voter registration and get-out-the-vote efforts in the precinct for the next two years;
-Elect delegates and alternate delegates to the County Assembly, and in some cases to certain district assemblies and higher assemblies and conventions;
-Discuss, and approve or reject certain resolutions relating to the Party platform
If I’m not a registered Republican voter can I still attend my Precinct Caucus as an observer?
-Yes you can attend as an observer, but you will not be allowed to vote in the Presidential Preference Poll or participate in the election of precinct committeepersons or delegates to political party assemblies.

FAQ: Delegate Information
What is a delegate and what do they do?
-Delegates and alternate delegates are elected by eligible Precinct Caucus voters to advance to their County Assembly, and potentially to certain higher assemblies including legislative and judicial district assemblies, Congressional district assemblies and the state assembly and convention. At these political party assemblies, delegates will vote to designate candidates to the 2012 Republican Primary Election ballot. Delegates selected at the Precinct Caucuses may but are not required to pledge their votes to their preferred candidates for elective office.
How do I become a delegate to the National Convention?
-Colorado is allowed to send 36 delegates and 33 alternate delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida on August 27-30, 2012. At each of Colorado’s seven congressional districts assemblies, 3 delegates and 3 alternate delegates are elected, and the remaining 12 delegates and 12 alternate delegates are elected at the Colorado Republican State Assembly and Convention held on April 14, 2012. The members of the Republican National Committee from Colorado are also delegates to the Republican National Convention.
Do I have to run as a pledged delegate for a specific presidential candidate?
-No. You can run as an unpledged delegate. However, if you wish to be considered as a candidate for National Delegate, you must be first elected as a delegate or alternate delegate to your local county assembly and to the State and/or Congressional District assembly from which you wish to be elected, and you must notify the Colorado Republican Party of your interest by filing a “National Delegate Intent Form” no later than thirteen (13) days prior to the State or Congressional District Assembly. You can obtain the “National Delegate Intent Form” from your local Republican party leaders on the day of your county assembly. Pledged candidates for National Delegate remain pledged to their candidate unless their candidate withdraws from the Presidential contest, releases their delegates, or is not nominated.
When and where is my:

FAQ: Candidate Information

When is the Republican Primary Election?-June 26, 2012
What are the residency requirements to be eligible to run for public office?
-Federal office (U.S. House) – Colorado Resident
-State Senate and State House – minimum 1 year residency within the district
How do I gain access the 2012 Republican Primary ballot?
-Republican candidates for partisan elective office may be designated to the Republican Primary Ballot by participating in the assembly process and securing at least 30% of the votes at the nominating assembly corresponding to their district. If a candidate receives less than 30% but more than 10% of the votes at the assembly, they can pursue Primary Election ballot access via petition. A candidate that receives less than 10% vote at the assembly is disqualified from the Primary Election ballot.
-Candidates have the option to not participate in the assembly process and instead petition signatures for Primary Election ballot access. The amount of signatures required depends on the size of the district’s electorate.
What is the deadline to declare my candidacy?A Republican candidate seeking access to the primary election ballot by assembly is not required to announce his or her candidacy in advance, and can simply volunteer at the designating assembly. Single-county legislative districts will hold their assemblies in connection with their county assemblies in mid- to late March. Multi-county district assemblies must happen after all applicable county assemblies, and will generally be after March 28 through April 13.
If no candidates are designated at the respective political party assemblies, there is a short window of time thereafter where political party assembly vacancy committees can designate a Republican candidate to the primary election ballot if there is a vacancy in designation. But if no candidate is designated to the primary ballot, then the chance to nominate a Republican candidate to oppose the Democrat in the general election is lost.
If a candidate wishes to bypass the caucus and assembly process, and seek access to the primary election ballot by petition, the first day to start circulating petitions is February 6th (the first Monday in February). Petitions must be submitted no later than April 2nd (no later than the 85th day before the primary election).

El Paso County Republican Assembly, Saturday April 10, 2010 (Post Caucus)

Leave a comment

In the caucus, we had the usual Washington DC push down candidate status quo aficionados attempting to forge the event mostly in their favor; however true democracy as in our Constitutional Republic prevails with very determined volunteers to include myself trying to represent all voters not just pro Nation building and pro tax entities that call themselves fiscally responsible yet are not. Nation building brings profits mainly to bankers and special interests world wide; not the American people. After several attempts were made by unkown persons setting business appointments for Caucus evening to sabotage my attendance, I made delegate to the county assembly for April 10th and new term co-chair precinct leader for our new precicnt #391. The caucus is a special event and great if we could keep it by perhaps simplifying the forms and educating more the public and not just at election time but through out the year. To many in our area it is not so much about the political party but about the people’s well-being, their families, their jobs and other voters concerns like to be able to live a life with dignity, chance at prosperity, harmony and not in servitude to the government but in self-reliance.

The focus for 2010 and in our precinct 391 will be for state’s rights, local economy, entrepreneurship, small business and State sovereignty, so that regardless of the inimical anti-family or anti-business programs coming at the federal level our citizenry can survive. After all the States created the federal government and not the other way around and must be kept within its proper bounds and to not infringe on the rights of the people to be secure in their property and in their persons. For our precinct area and for the State of Colorado I have created a Colorado Small Business web page to help promote small business and local business productivity sponsored by a Colorado State attorney for guidance.

Enclosed are the list of candidates running for office for 2010. As a delegate I prefer candidates that are running for office from the heart; the ones that truly care for the people of Colorado and not the special money interests that tend to groom candidates for their future pet projects that often work against the American people. For senate I endorse Ken Buck, for Governor Dan Maes with executive business experience very much needed today not bureaucracy, and for El Paso County Clerk & Recorder, Dr. Charles Corry. I would like to say that second best choice for me is Scott McInnis for the governor race since he will also do well in performance and has been improving all aspects of his work.

Here is a list of the proposed Resolutions posted by the El Paso County GOP office and please print for these are very critical if we are to remain a Constituional Republic and not a future Nation ruled by wolves. Resolutions to review for the County Asssembly, Click Here. To learn more about schedules, parking, and other more specific information here is a link sent to everyone by Kay Rendleman, Click Here. Individuals from our precinct wish to thank all the volunteers that help with the events and the candidates for their dedication in trying to show face for the American people and for their hard work in studying the issues to try and restore our country to sound principles. Lets keep them in our prayers and in good will.
