Another busy – and confusing – presidential election year coming up! Colorado decided to hold Presidential Primaries, rather than caucuses, so that more people could participate AND so that Colorado would be early enough in the decision-making season to have more influence. However (weirdly), there will still be causes for non-Presidential candidates AND a primary for non-Presidential candidates as well.

Don’t worry, everyone’s confused. Look at this way: YOU really DO get to vote more than just one time!
