Are you ready for the HAWKEYE CAUCUSES?

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

After a 2011 filled with GOP Presidential candidates blanketing the state of Iowa, the Iowa Caucuses will officially begin the race for the 2012 Presidency. While President Barack Obama will represent the Democrats, the decision as to who will provide the Republican challenge remains very much up in the air. Tonight's activities will serve as the nation's first step toward that choice.


Republicans

Clay County: Party Caucus begins at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Spencer High School. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with speakers representing each candidate given five minutes to address the room, starting at 6:15 p.m. Iowa House Republican candidate Megan Hess will also address the gathering.

Dickinson County: Party Caucus begins at 7 p.m. in the gymnasium at the Spirit Lake Middle School. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Democrats

Clay County: Party Caucus begins at 7 p.m. at the Spencer Middle School Media Center. Doors open at 6 p.m. and speeches, including Iowa House Democratic candidate Steve Bomgaars, will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Dickinson County: Party Caucus begins at 7 p.m. at the Expo Center on the Dickinson County Fairgrounds in Spirit Lake. Doors open at 6 p.m.


In addition to listening to representatives from candidates for office, participants will have the opportunity to take part in the platform submission process, and determine county convention delegates.

To take part, participants must be in line or signed in by 7 p.m. Please bring a photo ID. Voters may register on site.
