Who can participate in a caucus?

To participate, you must be eligible to vote in the Fall election and live in the precinct. You also must generally agree with the principles of the political party hosting the caucus.

 

What will happen at the caucus?

Each political party runs their caucus meetings a little differently. Check with your political party if you have specific questions. Generally, there are four main activities at a caucus:

  1. Choose volunteers who will organize political activities in the precinct. This could include maintaining contact lists, holding political meetings, and helping with campaign efforts.

  2. Vote for the person you want the party to support for President. This is called the presidential preference ballot. The results determine how many delegates each candidate gets at their party's national endorsing convention.

  3. Discuss issues and ideas for the party to support. You can present an issue or idea for the party to support, called a resolution. If you convince other attendees to support your resolution, it will be taken to the next political convention. Eventually, your resolution could become part of the official party platform. 

  4. Choose delegates who will endorse candidates at future conventions. At future conventions, party delegates will endorse state and federal candidates, including for President. Political parties have different ways of choosing delegates at the precinct level caucus—contact your party for more information.

If you have any questions about this process, please email Brian Winkelaar at bwinkelaar@ibew110.org

 

 

Annual IBEW Day on the Hill
 

IBEW 110 annual day on the hill is coming soon.  With our livelihoods under attack, this is the opportunity to have your voice heard.  Your legislator needs to hear from you about the terrible ideas like right to work and needs to hear about the great things like apprenticeship and prevailing wages.  Your legislator listens to you...why...because YOU vote.  It does make a difference who is carrying the message, and you are the best messenger.  So come on and join your brothers and sisters to help make our union and state stronger.

When:  Wednesday, March 23, 2016
Where:  IBEW 110 Union Hall
Time:  9:00 am

Please contact Teloa at tvolkman@ibew110.org to register.  We need your shirt size to order shirts/jackets for all of our volunteers.
