Democratic Party to caucus March 5

The Kansas Democratic Caucuses are organizational gatherings of neighbors, run by the Kansas Democratic Party, where Democrats meet to conduct party business and declare their presidential preference. Democrats will gather March 5, 2016, across the state to elect delegates to the congressional district convention and address key issues important to their communities.

There will be 47 caucuses across the state, one in each senate district. Senate districts that overlap between congressional districts will caucus separately. Osage County is in Senate District 19 and caucus goers will caucus at Highland Park High School, 2424 SE California St., Topeka.

Any person who is eligible to vote in state of Kansas and who will be 18 years old on Election Day, Nov. 8, 2016, may participate in the Kansas caucuses. These individuals must reside in the senate district in which they wish to participate, and they must be registered as a Democrat. Voter registration and party registration is available on the day of the caucus.

All caucus locations are open to the public and press.

All attendees must register 1-3 p.m. March 5; everyone must be in line by 3 p.m. to participate. Eligible caucus goers divide to form presidential preference groups. If a preference group does not have enough people to be considered viable, or 15 percent of total caucus goers, eligible attendees will have an opportunity to join another preference group or acquire people into their group to become viable. Delegates are then awarded to the preference groups based on their size.

For voters who do not reside in Osage County or Senate District 19, find caucus locations here.
