Jefferson County Republicans
There have been recent letters and postings on the internet that imply that the Jefferson County Republican Party is turning away volunteers that openly support conservative candidates and issues in our County. It is disingenuous to suggest that Jeffco Republicans are picking any one candidate over another candidate. Our aim is to fairly support all our candidates during the selection process and then stand behind those candidates that are selected in the primary so that they emerge victorious during the election this fall.
Following the caucus meetings of March 4, we are tasked with our biggest volunteer efforts to produce and tabulate countywide data, which we are obligated to conduct by state statute. We have been made aware there have apparently been instances where some of our valuable volunteers were told they could not enter caucus data because it might be perceived that this could give one candidate an advantage over another candidate. For that we apologize and have rectified the situation. There was not any intent to allow volunteers working on behalf of some candidates and exclude volunteers working on behalf of others.
The most important issue to keep in mind is that after verification of eligibility and completion of data entry - all candidates will receive, at the same time, complete lists of delegations that were elected to the County, Congressional, and State Assemblies. Candidates can then use this information as appropriate for their campaigns. Our mission is and has always been to help elect republicans at all levels of government and advance the cause of liberty.
We need your help supporting communication with Republicans. There is a lot of work to be done.
Even if you can spare just a few hours or work all day, we can use you. Computer programming, Website Reporting, General Office, Campaign Support, Volunteer Coordinating, Communications, Newsletter, Community and Media Relations and Phone Answering help is needed.
Help at our County Assembly on March 22 with reception, check-in and refreshments.

It's that time everybody! Colorado's caucus system affords everyone an opportunity to have a voice well before November 2014. So if you were elected as a delegate or alternate at your precinct caucus be sure to attend your assembly and arrive early!

At Large Application
If precincts do not fill their allocated delegate positions, the Chairman may fill them from a pool of applicants. Please log in to the website so we can verify your eligibility to apply for an at large delegate position to the State or Congressional Assembly. Note you must have been elected to the county assembly at your caucus to be eligible and prepayment is required. A deadline will be posted when determined.
Some candidates have announced their candidacy. Note those who have registered as belonging to a political party (Libertarian, Democrat, Republican, etc.) must still win their party's nomination in 2014 and then they will be on the General Elections ballot. For now, we list the "Announced Candidates." We will keep this updated regularly and add candidates as their race becomes official. After each Assembly is held we will update the list of candidates for the affected offices. Once all the Assemblies are held the list will show who will be on your Party's Primary Ballot.
View the announced candidates to date for the 2014 elections.

(Denver) – In the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee today legislators heard testimony and voted down SB14-141 – a bill sponsored by Senator Kevin Grantham (R-Cañon City)and Senator Kevin Lundberg (R-Berthoud) to take a 2-year “time-out” on last year’s HB 1303 and allow officials to conduct all elections under the well-established rules that existed prior to 1303. “Election law is a cornerstone of our representative government and should reflect bipartisan consensus, not party line railroading,” said Senator Kevin Grantham. “We have a first class mess on our hands in this state when it comes to election law and SB14-141...
