Republicans Report High Interest in Missouri Caucuses

The Missouri Republican Party says a lot of people are asking how to take part in this weekend’s caucuses. Lloyd Smith, executive director of the state party, says if you’re a registered voter you can get in by showing a photo ID. You must be a resident of the county where you want to caucus, and you must declare that you are a Republican for the purpose of the caucus.

Smith says participants will select delegates and alternates to the Congressional District Conventions April 21st and the State Convention June 2nd. Smith says unlike other caucuses watched by the national media, the county caucuses in Missouri will not produce candidate “results” available that day. The Buchanan County caucus starts at 10 Saturday morning in the Division Three courtroom on the second floor of the Courthouse. Party veterans advise you to arrive early.
