Excellent article, link to it posted on Colorado Caucus News Facebook Page.

(This is the #1 networking opportunity in Colorado, and it's free! Don't miss this opportunity to meet with your neighbors, it's ok if you just observe. Tip- cookies are always a big, big hit! More tips over the weekend on COCaucus.org, what's yours? Please post as a comment below.)

"Anyone can attend caucuses, but only the registered voters who meet certain requirements can participate in caucus business. Caucus-goers must have been affiliated with their party by Jan. 4 and had until Feb. 4 to change an address to their current precinct. Caucuses start promptly at 7 p.m., so party officials are urging attendees to arrive early — many locations will be operational by 6:30 p.m. — to sign in and be prepared for the meeting.

"Republicans are directing voters to the state party’s cologop.org website to find caucus locations and preregister, potentially speeding the check-in process on Tuesday night. Likewise, Democrats have a caucus-finder posted at coloradodems.org."

OUTSTANDING SUMMARY ARTICLE-- TAKE JUST A MINUTE TO IMPROVE COLORADO, CARE ENOUGH TO "SHARE" IT WITH YOUR FACEBOOK FRIENDS. THANKS!

There is a real need for newcomers to Colorado and newcomers to Colorado politics to go to the caucus for the first time, then be ready to be a neighborhood leader next time.

Party insiders sometimes just don't get the word out, they think everyone knows about it, and this just is not true. So you can really, really help if you'll go to  http://Facebook.com/ColoradoCaucusNews. Find the above quote and forward the whole article to your Facebook friends if you haven't already.

You can see the excellent summary article (although it leaves out the most important fact about the Colorado Caucus 2014, which I'll post as a comment below, you comment agreeing or disagreeing with me along with your Caucus Tip would be appreciated)  see the article directly at http://coloradostatesman.com/content/994677-caucuses-signal-start-2014-election-cycle
