It is free to attend the caucus, but there is a recommended donation of $10 to help us cover the cost of this venue and the materials we use during the caucus, such as copies of the proposed platform.

I'm busy at 10 AM, can I arrive late?

While we would love for everyone to arrive on time, we will be taking votes until close to 2:00pm, or possibly even 3:00pm, and late arrivals can still be credentialed to vote whenever they arrive.

I'm busy later in the day, can I leave early?

While we would love for everyone to stay until the very end, we understand that Saturdays are busy family times. You may leave early, but you will not be able to direct a proxy to vote on items after you go.

Is proxy voting allowed?

No, per state party rules there is no proxy voting allowed

Who can attend?

This is an open meeting and all community members of any age or citizenship status may attend and enjoy our speakers and conversation about important issues.
