I'm just back from South High School Denver District 2 meeting, I sat with Precinct 206, which is where I live, had a voice, no vote. I Twitted @JohnSWren as events unfolded.

My major impressions: It was very, very orderly. Almost no electioneering. Speakers for candidates seemed to be volunteers putting themselves forward at the last moment, for the most part. No signs or buttons.

I brought up idea of getting together an open neighborhood meeting, the young man elected precinct committee person liked the idea and said he'd call me about it.

Twitter on my computer running very slow, posting highlights not working. I suggest you follow them live at hashtag  #COCaucus on http://Twitter.com

I'll post my overall impressions later tonight.

I was very disappointed in the lack of organization, preparation, and clear communication at my precinct. One person left in frustration because it was so disorganized. I will not let this turn me away from my civic privilege, but my first impression of this process was not nearly what I had expected.
Thanks for taking the time to provide some guidance to me and others new to the process.

Going to your first caucus is a lot like going to your first football practice as a kid or your first discussion meeting that has been around for a long time.

Hope you will volunteer to be one of the precinct committee people, they will run the meeting in two years.

If not, I suggest you call whoever did step up and volunteer to help.

Did you get a chance to take a look at the 3 news articles about last night that I posted? See link I posted first thing this morning here on this blog. Any further comments you have on the process would be very welcome there (or any where else! :-) )

We are planning on having another Colorado Caucus Conference at the Capitol after the elections in November. Would you be willing to be on one of the panels to share your experience?
