It's that time of year again. Neighborhood Caucus Meetings will be held the evening of March 20th. Neighborhood caucus meetings are a way to directly participate in the democratic process. At these meetings, precincts elect delegates who then vote for candidates to become the nominee for each political party. If you want the either party to elect better candidates' then BECOME A DELEGATE in that party. We need people who love arts & humanities to become a delegate in ALL PARTIES, so they can help choose party nominees who care about culture.
Arrange a babysitter now, take your children (I've taken a toddler before), be there. Times and locations can be found here. If you would like to learn more about becoming a delegate, I will host a Facebook live stream on how to become a delegate on March 7th at 10am via our facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/utahculture/

Becoming a delegate is essentially a mini election! Your fellow precinct members who belong to your party and are your NEIGHBORS (precincts are small) will vote for their preferred delegate choices. Whoever brings the most neighbors wins!
Some parties split up county and state delegate spots. County delegates choose party nominees for partisan county offices and most legislators whose districts are entirely within that county's boundaries. State delegates choose party nominees for partisan federal races and then any legislative races whose district encompasses multiple county boundaries.
