How the Kentucky Republican caucus will work

Posted: Updated:

Republicans across Kentucky will participate in the state's first ever presidential caucus in just four days.

On Saturday, March 5th, caucus locations will open at 10:00 a.m.

The polls will close at 4:00 p.m., which means you must be in line by 4:00 p.m. in order to vote.

Only Kentuckians who had registered as Republican by December 31, 2015 will be allowed to vote in the caucus.

All voters will be required to show identification.

Unlike a primary election, there will be campaigning areas where representatives from each presidential candidate will distribute literature and answer questions.

There will also be 11 candidates on the ballot. 

This includes candidates who have dropped out of the race since filling to be on the ballot. You will see a list at your caucus location of those who have suspended their campaigns.

All voting will be in secret.

As a reminder, Republicans in Carlisle County will cast their ballots in Ballard County and Livingston County will vote in Marshall County.
