Story County GOP has four locations for the 2020 caucuses:
- Oakwood Rd Church - all Ames precincts & Washington/Kelley
- Cambridge Elementary School - Collins, Huxley, Indian Creek/Maxwell, Palestine, Slater/Sheldahl, Union/Cambridge
- Story City Senior Center - Franklin/Gilbert, Howard/Roland, Lafayette, Story City, Warren/McCallsburg
- Nevada Baptist Church - Grant, Lincoln/Zearing, Milford, Nevada, New Albany/Colo, Richland, Sherman
You can find your precinct's location on the auditor's website or the state GOP website. To find which precinct you live within, you can search your address on the Secretary of State's website.
Show up early by 5-10 minutes to ensure entrance. Caucus locations will close the doors at 7pm, so people who arrive after 7pm will not be admitted inside.
At caucus, registered Republicans will participate in the presidential poll, the election of Central Committee members, the election of county delegates, and the submission of platform planks.
- Central Committee members meet once a month and help run events, elect Republicans, and lead the Story County GOP.
- Delegates will represent their precinct at the county convention, and can be elected to serve at the district, state, and national levels. These delegates will vote on GOP candidates if none receive 35% of the primary vote and changes in the platform.
- Platform planks are the public statement of the county or state party values and goals. These can be sent with your precinct delegates.
In preparation for the caucus, you are most welcome to review our county platform and our state platform. If there are any statements (called "planks") that you wish to submit, please have those ready to write down at caucus.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Otherwise, we are excited to see you at the 2020 Iowa Republican caucuses!
