TO MAKE THIS VERY SIMPLE, THIS SATURDAY, CAUCUSES ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO ATTEND TO MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE!
“Presidential primary ballots will be in the mail Feb. 1, and some people might not be pleased that they’ll have to pick a political party to vote.
‘From personal experience, I can tell you our voters do not like to do that in this state. We have a very populist history, and they do not like to declare a party allegiance,’ Thurston County Auditor Kim Wyman said Wednesday [Jan. 30].
The state Democratic Party will pay no heed to the results of the Feb. 19 election anyway.
They and the Republican Party will hold neighborhood meetings of party members, called caucuses, Feb. 9.
For Democrats, those meetings will determine which candidate state delegates will support at the national party convention in August.
The Republican Party of which Wyman is a member will use the presidential primary to decide 51 percent of its state delegates to that party’s September national convention. Caucuses will decide the rest.
Wyman and Secretary of State Sam Reed support having the public vote, regardless of its official effects. They say it gives the public a say, and the parties would be well-served to listen,” quoting The Olympian.
