Caucuses meet at the precinct level once every two years. A precinct is a group of typically less than 1000 registered voters assigned by your county clerk to be in the same area (usually your neighborhood). It’s the smallest political unit in Utah.
A caucus is a meeting of people from a single precinct who are members of the same political party, or who are not members and do not wish to sign up that evening, but are interested in observing how a caucus works.
The purpose of a caucus is for a neighborhood to meet and elect precinct officers, and state and county delegates, to represent the precinct at the state or county conventions.
Having small groups like this guarantees a direct line from citizen to candidate (a grass roots system). Every voice counts in the caucus/convention system because, when you are elected to be a delegate, you have a significant amount of influence in determining who your representatives will be.
