COLORADO — Saturday is Caucus Day in Colorado for registered Democrats and Republicans. As long as you registered with the party by Feburary 14th of this year, you can participate.

The Caucus is just one step for candidates for U.S. Congress, State Legislature, and District Attorneys to get on the ballot for June's Primary. Additionally, it's a way for members of a party to be selected as a delegate or committee member.

Caucus times are different for Democrats and Republicans. This year Republicans begin in the morning at 10 a.m. and Democrats begin at 2 p.m. with registration starting 30 minutes prior.

In order to caucus, you will need to go to your precinct location which is based on your address. To find out where that is, visit your party's website. Information can be found here.

After Saturday's event, there are still more assemblies at the county, district, and state level. Candidates can also collect signatures to get on the primary ballot.

Colorado's primary is June 30th. Unaffiliated voters can participate in the primary, but not the caucus and assemblies. Similar to other elections, unaffiliated voters can only fill out the ballot for one party.
