March 4 caucus

Dear Editor:

The Colorado Republican Precinct Caucus will take place at 7:00 PM on 4 March 2014 at eight separate locations corresponding to the eight precincts in Archuleta County.  The Caucus starts at 7 pm — you should plan to show up, check in, get your ballots, and see what all is going on by about 6:30!

In order to participate in your Republican Precinct Caucus you must be a resident in your Precinct not later than Monday, 3 February 2014. Don’t wait until the last minute. If you are uncertain as to which Precinct you are in, call the Archuleta County Clerk, 264-8331, to verify your Precinct or change your registration if you have moved. Again, the deadline to change your registered residence address — which could change your Precinct as a result of a recent move — is 3 February 2014.

If you want to check your Precinct yourself it is easy to do so. Just go to the County website (www.archuletacounty.org), click on ‘County Departments’ and then ‘Clerk/Recorder’s office’, click on ‘Elections’ and then on ‘Election Precincts’ to see the maps — you can enlarge them to get a better look — then find your street and you should be able to identify your Precinct.

Precinct 1 — County Commissioners’ Meeting Room, County Courthouse, POC Olaf Hogrelius, (H) 264-2920;
