Caucusing is under the microscope. The confusion that ensued over the Iowa Democratic caucuses has fueled such scrutiny. Two days after those caucuses, people are still waiting for the results. State Democratic party officials blame a new voting app they used to tally votes. But issues of accessibility (caucusing is often a multiple hour process) for parents, low-income folks and people with disabilities have also been central to the conversation.
Here in Wyoming, caucusing remains the system in place to select candidates in primary presidential races. But this year, the Wyoming Democratic party has made some changes. They are moving to a ranked choice voting system. Democratic State Rep. Mike Yin will explain what to expect 5:30 p.m. today at Picnic.
Ahead of that meetup, Yin discussed the nuts and bolts of caucusing, basic changes to the procedure and the upcoming Wyoming Legislative session which begins next week.
