Boulder County, Colo.The deadline to register or for
currently registered voters to either switch party affiliation or to change
from an unaffiliated voter to the Republican or Democratic Party in order to participate
in the March 6, 2018 Republican and Democratic Party precinct caucuses is Monday,
January 8.

Voters can update
their voter registration online at GoVoteColorado.com.

Voters who are
already registered Republicans or Democrats but who have moved recently must update
their residential address information by Monday, February 5, in order to
participate in their precinct caucuses.

A Precinct
Caucus is a neighborhood meeting conducted by the political parties, where
affiliated voters may get involved in selecting delegates for their party’s
County and State Assemblies. This is an important step in the democratic
process, because the delegates will eventually elect county, state and
congressional candidates to appear on the party’s June 26 Primary Election
ballot, and also approve a party platform for 2018. In addition, registered voters
who attend the Caucus may register to be an election judge for the upcoming
elections.

Any registered
voter who is affiliated with the Republican or Democratic Party may attend the
caucus in their precinct for that party. Boulder County’s Republican and Democratic
Party caucuses will be held in the evening on March 6 at schools, community
centers, churches and other locations. Each political party organizes and
conducts its own caucus meetings. For more information about the Boulder County
Republican Party Caucus, visit
www.bocogop.org or call 303.443.6606. For more information about the Boulder County
Democratic Party Caucus, visit
www.bocodems.org or call 720.526.2104.

In addition to
caucus coming up, the Boulder County Elections Division would like to inform
voters of the change regarding participation by unaffiliated voters in primary
elections beginning this year. If you are an unaffiliated voter, you can either
declare a ballot preference on your voter registration record or you will be
sent ballots for all parties conducting a primary election. However, a voter
may only vote and return one party’s ballot. If a voter returns multiple
ballots, none of their votes will be counted.
