With the focus of attention today on the Iowa caucuses, it is natural that local people are asking the question: When will Wyoming hold its caucuses?
Wyoming, like Iowa, does not hold a Presidential Primary election, but instead, uses the caucus/convention method.
Democrats will hold a combined caucus/convention meeting in each of the 23 Wyoming counties on April 14, 2012. Ana Cuprill, Chair of the Sublette County Democratic Party, has not yet announced the time or location of the Democrats' Sublette County caucus/convention, but KPIN will pass this information on once it has been finalized.
Republicans in Wyoming will hold the first of two meetings, the precinct caucus, at different days throughout Wyoming in early 2012. Here in Sublette County, Sublette County Republican County Chairman Walt Bousman has announced that the Sublette County precinct caucuses will be held on February 16th at 7 PM. Republican precinct Committeemen and women in the nine different voting precincts in Sublette County will be responsible for setting up precinct caucuses in their own precincts, and once the locations are determined, again, KPIN radio will pass this information on to our listeners.
These caucus meetings are open to registered voters in each party, and those planning to participate who did not vote in the last general election here in Sublette County should visit with the Sublette County Clerk's office to be sure their voter registration is valid at least 15 days prior to the caucus meetings.
For now, the important thing is to write down the dates: For Democrats, it is April 14th, and for Republicans, it is February 16th.
