What is a Party Caucus?

There are two ways for a candidate to appear on your November General Election ballot. Candidates may circulate a petition that must be signed by registered members of the political party that they are seeking to represent in the fall contest.

For some local elections, your Town may participate in a Party Caucus to determine local candidates for office. All registered members of that political party in that geographic jurisdiction are eligible to participate in determining their party nominee.

Party caucus notices are uploaded to our website under the Candidate Information page.
