Local GOP Presidential Caucuses This Saturday in Missouri

MEMPHIS, Mo.- This Saturday (March 2nd), voters in Missouri will have the opportunity to participate in the GOP Caucus.  A Missouri law passed in 2022 changed the process from a state mandated presidential preference primary to a system of each party’s choosing.  Scotland County Republican Central Committee Chairperson Dr. Jeff Davis says that the Republican Party in Missouri chose the caucus system for 2024.



Davis says there are several reasons why the party chose to move away from the primary selection process.



Local cacuses will begin at 10 am, but you will want to make sure and arrive early.



Davis explains that the local caucus serves a couple different purposes.



The process for participating in the caucus is very simple.  Davis says that if you’re on time with a valid photo ID, you should have no issues.



The caucus process is probably a new concept to most people.  Davis explains how the caucuses will work locally.



Davis says that the ultimate goal of the caucus is to determine who the county delegates will vote for at the state convention.  He explains how that is determined.



For those who would like more information about the county GOP caucuses, Davis says you can talk to your local party officials or go online.
