8 Caucus Tips and Instructions

Follow these tips to help ensure a good caucus experience for you and the other attendees.

1. Bring your own ball point pen. Bring a couple extra pens to share.

2. Know your precinct before you arrive. Use this online Precinct Finder. There will be maps and helpful volunteers at the caucus sites, but they may be swamped helping other people.

3. Plan to get there 15 minutes early so we can start at 7:00 pm promptly. Use this Caucus Finder if you don’t know where your caucus meets.

4. We will start with everyone in a large group meeting at 7:00 pm, then at about 7:15 everyone will break up and go to their individual precinct caucus meeting rooms. Look for signs directing you to the specific meeting room for your precinct’s caucus.

5. Consider serving as the caucus convener for your precinct. We will be searching for folks willing to facilitate and run the meetings. (It is easy! We will provide a script and easy-to-follow directions.)

6. Do your homework–read these “Dear Voter” letters from the candidates.

7. Consider printing the following documents and bring them with you.
