This site is now listed on the Civic Software Index (USA/ Parliamentary monitoring). This is a bit of a misnomer. Of course we have no Parliament. And the purpose of our Colorado caucus-assembly is to select candidates for the primary ballot and to select party leadership. This site is all about civic education, maybe they will create a new category when they read this.

What effect do you think the Internet will make in our (potentially) wonderful Colorado Caucus, the neighborhood gatherings that result in the selection of neighbors to represent our local views at local assemblies where local candidates are nominated, planks for the party platform are selected, and party leadership is chosen.

Did you attend your neighborhood caucus in the past? Are you ready to assume more of a leadership role? We are going to resume the active discussion here that will once again help people have more of a voice in this powerful, grassroots process. Stay tuned! We'll be making a media announcement about or plans for civic education for everyone in the next few days.

I was just told by the Colorado Secretary of State's office that, as has been well publicized, the GOP caucus date has selected by the party, they have filed documents electing February 7, but that nothing has yet been announced by the Democrats regarding the date of their caucus.
