CAUCUS INFORMATION

We love having members of our community involved in the election process. It is as follows:

Tuesday, November 6 – General Election – 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM – Various locations around the county

There are opportunities for SC’s registered voters to actually be involved in the nomination of candidates to the Primary ballot, but in order to do so, they must be at the Caucus.
This year there are a number of opportunities within our own county for elected office:

Clerk & Recorder …… currently held by Kathy Neel (DEM) …… was elected as a REP!
Assessor – Term Limited …… currently held by Beverly Breakstone (DEM)
Sheriff …… currently held by Jaime Fitzsimons (DEM) ….Derek Woodman (REP) has announced his candidacy
Treasurer – Term Limited ……. currently held by Bill Wallace (UAF) …… was elected as a DEM
Coroner …… currently held by Regan Wood (REP)
Surveyor …… currently held by Gary Wilkinson (REP) – Confirmed running again
Commissioner – District 1 ….. currently held by Dan Gibbs (DEM) – Confirmed running again

Anyone interested?

State positions are really important, too, and there are a lot of candidates running for Governor, Treasurer, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Congressional District 2. (If a DEM is appointed to any of these positions, be sure that a lot of liberal policies will either be continued or instituted. CO will likely become a “Sanctuary State”.)

This is a presentation produced by the CO State Republican Party:

Complete Precinct Caucus Attendance Sheets & Verify Eligibility

Select Caucus Officers (Chairman, Secretary, Tellers – temporary for the purposes of the Caucus only)

Elect Summit County Precinct Committeepersons (PCPs):
2 PCPs who will serve for 2 years as the Republican representatives and workers in their precinct. These are arguably, next to candidates, the most important people in the party organization, its eyes and ears, its representatives who will have one-on-one contact with the voters, who will help take Republican principles, issues, and candidates to the people in their precincts. They will be asked to attend Republican meetings and help to get out the vote.

Prepare List of Recommended Election Judges
We need registered Republicans to volunteer to serve as judges in the elections. For every DEM or UAF, there must be a REP judge. They help to ensure that the elections are fair and honest. Training is provided.

Presentation of Resolutions
Resolutions are issues which individuals would like passed onto the state. They are assessed for their validity by a committee, and then they presented at the County Assembly and voted upon. The County forwards those for consideration to the State for presentation at the State Assembly.

Elect Delegates to the SUMMIT County Assembly
The number of Delegates/Alternates elected in each precinct will be ONE Delegate and ONE Alternate as dictated by our County Bylaws. These Delegates and Alternates are elected to attend the County Assembly. If nominated, they will earn the opportunity to attend the State Assembly. 20 Delegates and Alternates will be elected. Fees to participate are involved for the higher assemblies.
These people also serve as the Delegates/Alternates to State House and State Senate District Assemblies (on the day before the State Assembly).

Complete and Return Precinct Caucus Paperwork
Some of this information is required by the SC Clerk & Recorder.
