2020 Caucus Information

The 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses will take place on Monday, February 3, 2020.

 

What are the Iowa Caucuses?

The Iowa caucuses are biennial electoral events for members of the Democratic and Republican parties in the U.S. state of Iowa. Unlike primary elections in most other U.S. states where registered voters go to polling places to cast ballots, Iowans instead gather at local caucus meetings to discuss and vote on the candidates. During both the presidential and midterm election seasons, registered Iowan voters vote in a per-precinct caucus for the party of which they are registered as a member.

 
What to Know When Attending the Caucuses- 
  • The caucuses start at 7:00 p.m. Arrive early, because once the caucus starts, late-comers will not be allowed in.
  • You must be registered to the party for which you are caucusing. That means you must be a registered Democrat to participate in the Democratic caucus, and you must be a registered Republican to participate in the Republican caucus.
  • If you are not registered to a party or are registered to a different party, you can still caucus. You can change your party registration at your precinct caucus.
  • You must reside in the precinct where you are caucusing.
  • You must be eligible to vote. If you have not registered to vote yet, you will be able to do this at your precinct caucus.
  • You must be 18 years old by election day.
  • Precinct caucus may last anywhere from an hour to several hours, depending on the size of the caucus. You are allowed to leave at any point.
