THORNBURGH URGES VOTERS TO PARTICIPATE IN PARTY CAUCUSES

TOPEKA, KS – Today, Kansas Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh urged voters to make their voice heard in the upcoming Democratic and Republican party caucuses.


"The caucus system is the purest form of our democratic process. Kansas is uniquely positioned to be one of the deciding states in nominating a candidate for president and I encourage all qualified Kansans to participate in this important process,” Thornburgh said.


“While the Secretary of State’s office and county election offices do not have a role in the caucus, interested voters can contact their respective parties for more information.”


The Democratic caucus is scheduled for Tuesday, February 5, 2008 and the Republicans will caucus on Saturday, February 9, 2008.


For more information on the Kansas Democratic and Republican caucuses, the Secretary of State’s office suggests contacting the state party offices. The Kansas Democratic Party can be reached at (785) 234-0425 or www.ksdp.org, and you may reach the Kansas Republican Party at (785) 234-3456 or www.ksgop.org.
