Missouri Caucuses

As you might or might not know, the Missouri presidential primaries were fairly irrelevant, practically speaking.

The caucuses, however, are significant. And they’re in one month and two days.

Here’s how they work. (This is taken directly from the Missouri Republican Party website).

  • County Caucuses, March 17, 2012: Attendees will select delegates and alternates to the Congressional District Conventions and State Convention.  Delegates selected at the county level will not be bound to a specific candidate unless a rule is passed by participants of the caucus. (See below for a list of county caucus locations.)
  • Congressional District Conventions, April 21, 2012: Delegates chosen at the county level will select 3 delegates and alternates to the National Convention and 1 presidential elector.  These delegates and alternates will identify their candidate before being chosen.  They will be bound to that candidate on the first ballot at the national convention.
  • State Convention, June 2, 2012: Delegates chosen at the county level will vote on a slate of 25 at-large delegates and alternates to the National Convention and 2 at-large presidential electors. These delegates and alternates will identify their candidate before being chosen.  They will be bound to that candidate on the first ballot at the national convention.

    Go for it, Dude! You would make a magnificent delegate, with the sense to cast your vote for the proper candidate.

Your thoughts here. As long as they're not vulgar. Or spam.
