County Voters to Participate in March Caucus
Submitted By Karen Combs
Iowa voters held their caucus this week, and Jackson County Republican voters will get to cast a ballot in the state’s first caucus on Saturday, March 5. Jackson County Clerk Donald “Duck” Moore recently gave Jackson County Kiwanis Club members an update on the caucus and what Republican voters can expect on March 5. “It’s pretty simple,” Moore said. “Republican voters will go upstairs in the old courthouse, sign their name, mark their ballot and cast their vote.” Instead of voting on an electronic voting machine, registered Republicans will mark a paper ballot and turn it in to cast their vote. Moore is the local Republican Party chairman and he explained that the caucus is actually being organized and operated by the state Republican Party. He added that his office isn’t officially involved in the caucus and County Judge Executive Shane Gabbard is serving as the Jackson County Republican Caucus Chairman.
