Republican Voters Can Click Online to Find County Caucus Location
As the field of presidential contenders narrows, the Kentucky Republican Party is gearing up to make sure voters understand how to choose their candidate at next month’s caucus. The March 5th event is the first caucus held in the Bluegrass State in more than three decades.
The first requirement is that residents had to be registered to vote as a Republican by December 31, 2015, in order to participate in the caucus.
Executive director of the Republican Party of Kentucky Mike Biagi says then it’s just a matter of finding the county caucus site. “Those Republican voters can find out where to vote by going to the Republican Party of Kentucky’s website rpk.org click on caucus and there’s a search tool for any voter to look up where to go vote, because they’ve been assigned to a single caucus location."
“The voter only really needs to come in, show an ID, sign in, get a ballot, cast their vote, and be gone, if that’s all they really want to do. So, it can be an in-and-out, 2-minute process or they can kind of enjoy the caucus and maybe engage some of the people there from the presidential campaigns or from the local party,” Biagi says.
Most counties will have one caucus location, although some may conduct a regional caucus with neighboring counties.
