What is a caucus?
Caucus is the first step in the process of party organization, leadership elections, and candidate nominations. They occur every two years during the even numbered years.
Several items of business occur at caucus. Two people are elected to fill the position of "Precinct Committee Person", often known as a "PCP". These are the leaders for the precinct. They are sometimes also known as precinct chairs. These two PCPs serve a term of two years, up to and through the next caucus. PCPs also serve as members of the county's Central Committee, which elects all county party leaders, and is the main political governing body for the party for the county. Election judges are recruited at caucus.
At the caucus, delegates and alternates are elected to the County Assembly. These delegates and alternates will represent your precinct at the County Assembly, state legislative assemblies, and will elect delegates and alternates for the State Assembly and/or Conventions. Caucus participants can also submit and vote on resolutions for consideration at the County and State Assemblies.
