Caucus 2020

Caucus

Format change!

At the meeting of the statewide Republican committee, the format of the local caucus on April 4th was changed. Here is the pertinent part:

Under the new process, county caucuses will not be held. Instead, County Republican Central Committees will meet by phone on April 4 to vote on slates of delegates and alternates to the Congressional District and State Conventions.

The meeting should take place like any other county committee meeting: The County Chair will preside. Only members of the committee can participate. Any member of the county committee can present a slate, and all slates should be read aloud. The county committee then vote to elect 1 slate for the CD Convention(s) and 1 slate for the State Convention.

What is a caucus?

The Missouri Republican Party’s caucuses are public meetings held every four years to select delegates to the Congressional District Conventions and the State Convention, as well as review and consider amendments to the state party platform.

Why do we have caucuses?

Missouri state law (RSMO 115.776) requires the Missouri Republican Party to “conduct a series of caucuses culminating in congressional and state conventions” for the purposes of selecting delegates to the national convention.

Who can participate in a caucus?

Any self-declared Republican who is registered to vote in Missouri can participate in the caucuses. You must participate in the county where you are registered to vote. Photo ID required.
