The first step in the process toward the 2012 presidential election starts with the grassroots American tradition of neighborhood precinct caucuses.
Proceedings begin Tuesday, Feb. 7, with the Republican Party caucuses. The Democratic caucuses are March 6.
On Feb. 7 the Jefferson County Republican Party will hold caucuses for four precincts (2162530048, 505, 052, and 053) covering most of Evergreen, not including Hiwan or Conifer, at 7 p.m at Wilmot Elementary. There should be room for 200 to 400 people, said Ed Regalado, district captain.
