Pre-registration for Caucus Night is greatly encouraged!

On March 13, 2014 we had a successful Pre-Caucus Meeting for WJD030 at the home of Jeanette Drake. Dee Peel, Sharon Masters, Preston Brooksby and Mike Mahnken were in attendance. As precinct chair I greatly appreciate their willingness to help to plan our caucus meeting on March 20. With the new changes and procedures and the implementation of Voter Click it is vital that we have more involvement by the Republicans of our precinct. 

We encourage everyone who is able to participate to attend our caucus meeting and to pre-register online. If you are not able to attend, you are encouraged to print a same day ballot and send it to the meeting. I am re-publishing below an email from James Evans that I posted earlier so that the details of these processes are available again.

Caucus season has finally arrived! Click here to sign-in now for your neighborhood caucus meeting on March 20, 2014 and avoid waiting in the check-in line. If you register online you don’t have to fill out the sign-in sheet. Isn’t that great!
Also, if you find out you won’t be able to make it to your Caucus, you can still vote by printing your absentee ballot starting at 5pm on March 19, 2014 and have a family member or friend bring it to your caucus in a sealed envelope (remember to sign the back of the envelope), with a copy of your I.D. (Note & Important– we will not take the copy of your I.D. It will stay in possession of the person you gave it to). Each person may bring a maximum of 3 absentee ballots. Your absentee ballot will count for every round of voting your candidates are in.
We have made some changes to these meetings and our commitment is that the 2014 Caucuses last no longer than 2 hours!
We have sped up the check-in process by using online registration and encouraging the precincts to limit voting to two rounds. With that, everyone should make the 2 hour goal.
We know in 2012 many caucus meetings went very long because of the high turnout. We heard you and we have made the necessary changes.
Now, all we need is YOU on March 20, 2014, 7pm at your neighborhood caucus. See you there!
Thank you for your support of the Utah Republican Party.
