Colorado Caucus Explained
January 4th 2016 was the last day to register Republican in Colorado in order to participate in our 2016 caucus and convention process. If you missed this deadline, you will not be allowed to participate this year, but can attend and quietly observe so long as there is space.
What's Up With The Straw Poll?
As has been the case since 2010, Adams County will conduct a non-binding, unofficial straw poll. The video below explains more detail and even though they focus on El Paso County in the video, such applies 100% the same to Adams County. We are a swing county and much focus and resources will be in and on Adams County this year.
