Caucus Training Class Schedule for Jefferson County

Over the next 3 weeks, House District 29 Democrats Scott Merrifield, David Lightowler, and Kathryn Wallace will lead Caucus training courses throughout the County. As Caucus is a process to which Democrats are encouraged to attend, please share this schedule with the fellow Democrats of your Precinct. The intention of training is to advise Democrats of the schedule and processes of Caucus, therefore creating leaders within precincts to complete the agenda as noted by the Party. Topics covered in training will be the following:

  • Why we Caucus.
  • Schedule and agenda.
  • What is a PCP
  • Worksheets explaining the following:
  1. How to calculate the 15% percent threshold needed by each Senate Candidate.
  2. Various scenarios of calculating Delegates for specific Candidates.
