Caucus like a Catholic

By January 7, 2020No Comments

On caucus night, Feb. 3, 2020, Iowans will gather by party preference at their precinct sites to elect delegates to the 99 county conventions. The event is a statewide invitation to Iowans to gather in their communities to consider presidential candidates and issues and is the first-in-the-nation test of the 2020 electoral cycle.

The Iowa caucuses are designed as assemblies that welcome the participation of not only the most politically active, but everyday citizens. By our participation, Catholics can help create a foundation built on a moral vision that reflects the life and dignity of the human person.

You can register to vote or switch party registration at the caucus site. To see where your precinct will meet, go to www.iowademocrats.org or www.iowagop.org.

Typically following the presidential preference process, there will be time to present resolutions for approval by the precinct. These may cover a range of issues and positions and will influence the direction of the party platform. Many groups will have resolutions ready. We have a few suggestions that you could choose among to bring to your caucus.
