One week from tomorrow, Kansans will have the opportunity to weigh in on who they want to see as the next president of the United States.

The Kansas presidential caucuses will be held March 5, 2016 and with both parties still wide open, this is going to be a great opportunity for Kansans to have a voice.

The candidates are in; let the choosing begin!

Kansas NEA encourages everyone to attend the caucuses. We know that the caucuses are often poorly attended but when so much is on the line and when both parties are not yet settled on a choice, how can anyone who believes in the power of our democracy not want to be there?

Both parties make their own rules for how the caucuses work so we hope you will check the resources below to learn more. While our links go straight to the caucus locations, there is more information available on the Republican and Democratic Party websites.
