Colorado CUs caucus participation up 300
ARVADA, Colo. (2/11/08)--The Credit Union Association of Colorado (CUAC) reports that on “Super Tuesday,” state credit unions’ caucus participation was up by 300% statewide. With both Democratic and Republican caucuses taking place Feb. 5, CUAC coordinated volunteers throughout the state to either participate in the caucus process with their party or serve as an association caucus observer in their home precinct. The volunteers helped monitor the progress of the caucuses throughout the evening, giving local grassroots advocates insight into the happenings at caucus meetings statewide. “It was exciting to see the number of credit union grassroots advocates participating in their caucuses Tuesday night,” said Timothy Dore, CUAC senior vice president of government affairs. “The enthusiasm and interest of our membership was high and will continue to grow throughout the campaign season of 2008 as it progresses.” Precincts are the smallest political unit in the state and typically are held in homes, schools, churches or other locations within a neighborhood. There are nearly 4,000 precincts in Colorado.
