CAUCUS 2016: Know when and where to go for Super Tuesday in Aurora

AURORA | Absent all the campaign ads on TV and radio, you might be forgiven for not knowing there’s an election on if you live around Mission Viejo.

John Fulton of the HD 40 Democrats group said that about 10 signs went missing this weekend after being staked late last week advising caucus-goers to meet at Mission Viejo Elementary School.

The signage dilemma is just one aspect of what may be a confusing Super Tuesday caucus for Coloradans.

For Democratic voters, the choice between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will be closely watched as sign of whether Sanders will be able to win crucial states to remain competitive with Clinton in the delegate count.

But for Republicans turning out Tuesday night, March 1, the stakes are radically different. The state Republican Party decided in 2015 to not hold a presidential preference vote, so the Republican delegates selected to the national party convention in Cleveland this summer will not be bound to any one candidate.

But you can’t take part unless you know your precinct and where your party is meeting.

Find your precinct

To verify your voter registration, visit www.sos.state.co.us/voter-classic/pages/pub/home.xhtml. You will be asked for your name, ZIP code and birthday. Once verified, you will be shown your full voter registration information, including your party affiliation (which must have been set by Jan. 4 of this year to take part in the caucus) and precinct number (the last three digits of your precinct number can be used to find your local precinct).

For example, Democratic voters in Precinct 470 will caucus at Overland High School; GOP voters in the same precinct will be caucusing at Mrachek Middle School.
