All You Need to Know About the Caucus
In 2022, the Missouri State Legislature passed significant reforms to our election integrity statutes. One of the items changed was to move from an open primary system to a Party Caucus. That means each party meets at a particular time and location to choose its party's candidate. A caucus is a multi-phase process. Delegates representing winning candidates from the county caucuses then meet at congressional district caucuses where more voting occurs. Ultimately, delegates are chosen from the counties and the congressional districts who attend the state convention and the national convention to cast votes for our presidential preference and our party platform. A caucus is designed to allow the party faithfuls to choose candidates who represent the will of the party's voters.
