It's Caucus Time!

Tonight Americans in cities and small towns across the nation will gather at libraries, church basements, schools and private homes to discuss and deliberate the important issues surrounding the election of our next President.


Tonight is the National Presidential Caucus.

8 days ...

Nov 30

We're entering the homestretch for the first-ever National Caucus on December 7th. People across the country are registering caucuses at a nice clip. This is amazing! Now's the time to email your friends and family to get them involved. Now is the time to call your local media to let them know what's going on. The NPC team working behind the scenes knows we can't do it alone -- and we're not too proud to ask for help ... so please help now. This is participatory democracy at its best. Join in -- and spread the word!

Less than 48 hours to go until the Straw Poll - are you ready!?

As you know, November 9th is the dress rehearsal for the big day. It's a dry run so you can get the feel for what it's like to run a caucus.

Organizers, we've put together a brief Caucus Organizer Guide in a PDF document for you to print out and bring with you. You can download it here (right-click to save it to your computer).

Inside you'll learn the basics on how to run a caucus, what to expect, how to report your results, and some tips to make it easy and fun. In all, this document should answer any questions you may have about hosting your caucus tomorrow night.

If you have any other questions, please email us at and we'll help out the best we can.

The NPC team is beginning to ramp up for National Caucus Day on December 7th and will keep you posted of the latest and greatest developments.

To say the least, we are really excited by all the activity so far.

Go caucus tomorrow night and be sure to have fun!
