Republican precinct caucuses March 3Posted February 23, 2012
Washington voters will not receive a Presidential Preference Primary ballot in the mail this year (not to be confused with the General Election ballot for November’s presidential election). Registered Republicans must signify their preference for a Republican candidate by attending local caucuses on Saturday, March 3. Rather than having one meeting place for each of Clark County’s 194 voting precincts, caucus locations are “clustered,” with many precincts meeting at one location.
Doors open at 9 a.m. Volunteers will ensure voters are at the correct location. Attendees will register by precinct, sign an affidavit, and list presidential preferences. A general meeting will be held at each location starting at 9:30 a.m. Attendees will be allowed to register until 10:30 a.m., at which time registration will close and the official “precinct caucuses” will begin. Attendees will be required to sign pledges stating that they consider themselves Republicans. There is no cost to attend. Results of the presidential preference voting will be tallied and given to the Clark County Republican party’s executive director. When all precincts have reported, the results will be released to the public.
