Republican Party to hold precinct caucuses at SWHS

The 2012 Republican Party precinct caucuses for South Whidbey voters will be held March 3 at South Whidbey High School, Brett Wilhelm, chairman of the Island County Republican Party, said Friday.

The caucuses start at 10 a.m. Registered voters residing in one of the 25 precincts located on South Whidbey will convene for a pooled caucus in the high school's commons area.

Some voters in Central Whidbey precincts — Admiralty 1, North Bluff and all other precincts on the South Whidbey side of the Navy's Outlying Field — will also caucus at South Whidbey High School.  The precincts of Central, Prairie and all other precincts on the North Whidbey side of Outlying Field will caucus at Oak Harbor High School.

Wilhelm said that after consideration of resolutions and the Island County Republican Party platform, the pooled caucuses will adjourn to individual precinct caucuses for the election of delegates and alternates to the 2012 Island County Republican Party Convention.

The county convention is planned for March 31 at Oak Harbor High School.

Any registered voter of the precinct in which the caucus is being conducted who is willing to state, by signing a registration form, membership in the Republican Party and has not participated and will not participate in the 2012 caucus or convention system of any other party is eligible to participate in the caucus.
