    What is a caucus?

    I keep hearing about the Iowa caucuses, but I don’t really understand how they’re different from primaries. Can somebody help me out?

    Answer

    A caucus is a method political parties use in some states (notably Iowa) to choose presidential nominees, which is also what a primary is for, so that confusion is definitely justified. The main difference is that in a primary, you手机500彩票客户端 vote by secret ballot, but in a caucus, you手机500彩票客户端 gather with other members of the party and vote by raising you手机500彩票客户端r hand or grouping together in certain areas.

    Caucuses also give participants the chance to debate candidates, which you手机500彩票客户端 definitely can’t do at a primary. They also have multiple rounds—if a candidate has less than of the participants in their corner after the initial vote, their supporters can choose a different candidate in the second round.

    The whole thing is really confusing, and there’s a lot more to the process after the actual voting, but those are the big-picture differences. Hope this helps!

    A caucus is a meeting of supporters or members of a specific political party or movement. The term originated in the United States, but has spread to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and Nepal. As the use of the term has expanded, the exact definition has come to vary between political cultures.

    A caucus meant "to meet together." An informal organization of members of the House or the Senate, or both, that exists to discuss issues of mutual concern and possibly to perform legislative research and policy planning for its members.

    A caucus is a face-to-face meeting of political party members in a community to discuss and promote the affairs of their party.
