Lyon County Dems are holding a Mock Caucus

From the Lyon County Democratic Party:

WHAT THE HECK IS A CAUCUS?

Have you heard about the caucus, but it still seems confusing to you?
Or maybe you don't have a clue what it's about...
Come join us at our first Mock Caucus and you'll get a chance to experience first-hand how a caucus works. The Nevada Democratic Party is sponsoring a series of "mockuses" in rural Nevada and they are coming to Fernley on Thursday, June 7th.

Hosts: Jim and Teresa Williams
Address: 1060 Rimfield Drive, Fernley
Time: 6:30 PM

SPECIAL GUESTS:
Jill Derby, Nevada State Democratic Party Chair
Jean Hessburg, Statewide Caucus Campaign Director
Jayson Sime, Nevada Caucus Director

If you have already volunteered to be a Temporary Caucus Chair, or would like more information about the caucus, we really encourage you to attend this event.
It will give you a good feel for what will happen on January 19, 2008.

Feel free to bring friends and family.


On Edit: The Carson City Dems are doing the same thing on Thursday morning. Details:

Thursday, June 7th, 11:30 am
Buffet at Grandma Hattie’s
2811 S. Carson Street

The Nevada State Democratic Party is sponsoring an information and mock caucus meeting. Jean Hessberg, who ran the 2004 Iowa presidential caucuses, will be helping organize our efforts to make the January 19th the best and most well attended precinct caucus meetings. She will be leading this meeting and should have some valuable insights into what will be happening leading up to January and the running of the caucuses themselves. There will be some new wrinkles and some familiar ones. Let us prove that the DNC was right to select Nevada to represent the Intermountain West in the early stages of the primary process.

There will be some media coverage so a good turnout would be welcomed.

RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED

Please contact headquarters at 841-3367 or e-mail carsoncitydems@sbcglobal.net
The Douglas Dems will be holding a Mock Caucus at Whittell High School in Zephyr Cove on Friday. I'll get more information to you shortly.
