Written by Hillsboro Free Press Wednesday, 30 January 2008 08:23Kansas Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh this week urged voters to participate in next month’s Democratic and Republican party caucuses, but also reminded them that county election offices do not have a role in that process.
Carol Maggard, election clerk for Marion County, said her office has fielded several inquiries about participating in the caucuses.
“About all we can do is urge them to contact their respective parties for more information,” she said.
The Democratic caucus is schedule for Tuesday, Feb. 5, and the Republicans will caucus Saturday, Feb. 9.
For more information about the caucuses, interested voters should call the state party offices. The Kansas Democratic Party can be reached at 785-234-0425 or www.ksdp.org, and the Kansas Republican Party at 785-234-3456 or www.ksgop.org.
