Elections 2022

2022 is a midterm election year, an election year when voting turnout is historically lower than during Presidential Election years. Why are midterm elections important? They help determine representation in Congress and include state leadership roles like governorships and attorneys general. Locally, there are elections for city council members, mayors, school board members, county commissioners, and judges. All of which impact our lives as citizens.

Learn About Precinct Caucuses

What they are: Precinct caucuses are local meetings by political parties. They are not run by the government, but by the parties and are considered party activities.

The caucuses are held every two years and are the first in a series of meetings where parties may endorse candidates, select delegates, and set goals and values (called party platforms). 
Raised hands.

Caucuses for the 2022 election cycle will be February 1, 2022 at 7 pm.

Each political party runs their caucus meetings differently.
Check directly with a political party to answer specific

questions about how they are run and where their caucuses are located.

Who can participate in a caucus? To participate, you must be eligible to vote in the next general election and live in the precinct. You also must generally agree with the principles of the political party hosting the caucus.

What happens at a caucus? Each political party runs their caucsu a little differently so check with the local party if you have questions. Typically three main activities take place at caucuses:

1. Choose volunteers who will organize political activities in the precinct or state senate or house district.

2. Discuss issues and ideas (resolutions) for the party to support that will eventually become the party platform.

3. Choose delegates who will endorse candidates at future conventions.
