Dems' caucus site switched to Civic Center

It's official. The March 8 Laramie County Democratic Party caucus/convention will be held at the Cheyenne Civic Center at 510 W. 20th St. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the caucus starts at 9.

The caucus site was changed over the weekend when it became apparent that the original location, the UW Family Pratice Center auditorium, was going to be too small for the record turnout expected this year. Over the weekend, Mike Bell of the Laramie County Democrats guesstimated that up to 1,000 people might show up on March 8. The reason? The tight race between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Every single delegate is important this year.

To participate in the caucus, you must be a registered Democrat by this Friday, Feb. 22. Seventeen-year-olds who'll be 18 by the Nov. 4 general election can register and participate in the caucus.

FMI: Contact the Cheyenne office of the county and state Democrats by calling 307-634-9001.
