A raucous caucus

It’s after Super Tuesday, and the presidential primary campaign is still a horse race. It looks like we, the voters of Washington state, will actually have a voice in our presidential primary.

If anybody can remember the last time that happened, let me know.

On the Democratic side, Clinton and Obama are essentially tied. On the Republican side, while McCain now has a sizable lead, Romney and Huckabee are still in the race.

So it’s off to the caucuses for us.

Oh, that primary ballot you’re holding in your hand? If you’re a Democrat, you’re wasting your time — they won’t look at it. If you’re a Republican, the party will count the vote, but you’d have a more powerful voice if you go to your local caucus. I wrote a bit about why that is last month.

OK, so how do you find your caucus?

Both parties are holding caucuses on Saturday, February 9 at 1 PM.

If you’re attending the Democratic caucus, your caucus information is here. The site is getting hammered right now, so you may need to try back in an hour or two. If you can’t get through at all, try calling 206-583-4345.

If you’re attending the Republican caucus and you live in King County, your caucus information is here. Outside King County, check with the state Republican party.

A few Metroblogging Seattle authors will be attending caucuses throughout the city. See if you can spot us.
