What is a Caucus?
Precinct caucuses are meetings of local members of the Democratic Party. They are also the first step in the grassroots nominating process for the Democratic candidates on the November 2022 election ballot. These candidates will run in the new congressional and legislative districts, finalized in 2021. In addition, caucus provides many ways YOU can participate and be of service to the Weld County Democratic Party in the election process and beyond!
Who can participate?
- Any registered voter who has affiliated with the Democratic Party by February 7, 2022. Make sure your voter registration is updated to your current residence.
- Residents who are 16 or 17 years old who preregister as a Democrat may participate and vote in caucuses and assemblies.
When is Caucus?
Saturday, March 5, 2022, 9 am- Registration, 10 am Convenes (Virtual)
What happens at Caucus?

- Elect 2 Precinct Organizers who provide leadership for the precinct.
- Elect delegates to the Weld County Assembly – March 26, 2022, 9 am Registration and 10 am Convenes (Virtual) or Multicounty Assemblies – April 5-8 TBA. The number of Delegates will be determined by a delegate allocation formula and delegates will go as uncommitted. (No preference poll for candidates will be taken until the Assembly.)
