Here's a short blurb you can put in your school newsletter.
Plan now to attend your precinct caucus on March 23.
A caucus is the place where individuals can make the most difference. During your caucus, you'll elect delegates to go to the county and state party conventions. Your delegates represent you as they vote on and select party candidates for offices from state legislators to US senators and congressmen. You might want to be elected as a delegate yourself, or you can make a difference by voting for someone you believe will represent you.
For dates and times, see your party Web site. Republicans:www.utahcountygop.org/ Democrats:www.utahcountydems.com/

I'm a junior high Enlgish teacher. Best. Job. Ever. I have three adult kids--two at home. I do a little knitting and book reviewing on the side. I run, practice yoga, and am continually searching for healthier lifestyle options. I try to focus on needs rather than wants, and am working to be able to avoid cultural messages that try to define me and urge me to consume. I'm working on not beginning every sentence with "I." I haven't had much success so far. I'll keep trying.
