Caucus Tug of War

KSAL StaffMarch 3, 2016

Kansans will caucus on Saturday for presidential candidates and in Salina, the Democrats will gather at South High while the Republicans meet at Central High.

Republicans will vote a secret paper ballot while Democrats use sway to gather final support for their choice.

“I think it’s refreshing because you don’t have all the secret balloting,” said Phil Black Saline County Democratic Chairman for the 24th District, who joined in on the KSAL Morning News Thursday.

“Everybody knows what everybody’s doing and you are all debating – and that’s the way politics used to be.”

Democrats will be trying to decide how to allocate their 37 delegates while Republicans have 40 delegates up for grabs.

“The winner will get the most delegates,” said Clarke Sanders, the Chairman of the Saline County Republicans.

“But any candidate getting at least 10 percent will get some of the delegates.”

Voters will need to have a photo ID to check in which begins at 8:30am, then a short program kicks off at 10am in the Central High Auditorium.

Those taking part in the Democratic caucus have from 1pm until 3pm to enter the Cafeteria at South High School, and take part in the discussion after 3pm.

Black added those wishing to just observe can still come to the event even after the 3pm check-in deadline.
