Kansas Republicans get their turn in the presidential nomination spotlight today at 96 caucus sites across the state.
At those sessions, caucus-goers can cast secret presidential preference ballots that will bind the state’s 40 delegates to the Republican National Convention in August.
The delegates will be awarded roughly in proportion to each presidential candidate’s support at the caucuses.
Caucuses will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. Some sites will open their doors before the caucus starts in order to check registrations, and Kansas Republican Party officials said attendees should prepare for lines at some caucus sites.
The party said results should be made public this evening.
• Voters must have registered in Kansas as Republicans by Feb. 17 of this year and must be 18 years old by caucus day.
• Voters must present a valid state-issued photo ID.
• Advance votes, proxy votes and absentee votes are not allowed.
• Voters can cast a ballot at any caucus site in their congressional district.
Kansas Democrats will hold their initial nominating meetings in April.
