Neighborhood caucus night is March 5

On March 5, many political parties will hold neighborhood caucus nights in various locations throughout San Juan County. The Republican and Democrat events are all scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
Officials from both parties encourage participants to pre-register for the events.
For Republicans, those planning to attend precinct caucuses can preregister on the Utah GOP website at Scroll down until you see “Preregister for Caucus.”
Officials state that although preregistration is not required, it will help speed up the process on caucus night. A valid state issued ID will be required.
Local Democrats will meet in a single caucus via Zoom at 7 p.m. In order to participate, you must pre-register by Monday, March 4. For information, contact or
Once you register, the Zoom link will be emailed to you by 
At the caucus meeting, county Democratic delegates will be elected. If you wish to run to be a delegate but are unable to attend the meeting, contact
Additionally March 5 is the date for the Democratic Presidential Primary in Utah, with registered Democrats and unaffiliated voters who request a ballot to vote on the party’s Presidential nominee
The Utah Republican Party states that there are three factors that make these caucuses vital.
• Unlike other general election years, the Republican presidential candidates will not appear on the ballots. The new Presidential Preference Poll (PPP) conducted the night of March 5 will determine which Republican candidate receives Utah’s delegates at the GOP National Convention.
• Registered GOP precinct members will elect individuals to serve for two years as delegates to the county convention.
• They will also elect delegates to the state GOP convention, where Gubernatorial candidates and all other state candidates will vie for support of the state party.
• New precinct leaders, who will serve for two years, will also be elected on caucus night.
Most Republican precinct names and all boundaries in San Juan County have changed this year.
In an attempt to minimize confusion about where to meet for precinct caucuses, the Republican Party will be mailing a letter to all registered GOP voters indicating where to attend the caucus, and how to prepare for those meetings.
All registered Republican voters are encouraged to participate in the event. They may participate in person, by absentee ballot, or arrange to have their ballots dropped off at the precinct location.
The San Juan County Republican Party asks all registered GOP voters to watch for the informational letters that will be sent prior to March 5, and to reach out to their precinct leaders should they have questions.
The individual letters will contain precinct locations and leadership contact information.
If you have a question about whether or not you are at the correct precinct, bring along a proof of address such as a utility bill.
