The purpose of precinct caucuses is to elect precinct committee persons and delegates to the county assembly. There were 230 registered Republican voters in attendance, compared with 260 attendees in 2008 and 357 attendees in 2006.

Seventy delegates and 37 alternates were elected to attend the county assembly, which will be held at the Extension Building at 9 a.m. on April 10.

Precinct committee persons were elected/re-elected for each precinct. They will be ratified at the county assembly. New committee persons were elected in precincts 2,4 and 8.

Candidate letters were read to the audiences. Resolutions were proposed, debated, and the approved resolutions will be forwarded to the county assembly.

Nineteen attendees volunteered to serve as election judges for the fall elections.

All delegates and alternates elected at the caucuses on March 16 are expected to attend and participate.
