Observers cannot participate in a Precinct Caucus either (1) because they do not satisfy one or more the eligibility requirements, or (2) they choose to remain a neutral party who does not vote or speak.

Because of the strict timing requirements for completing the business of Precinct Caucuses, in the unlikely event any Observer disrupts the conduct official business of a Caucus, then the Convener or Caucus Chair may ask the Observer to leave or notify authorities if necessary to restore decorum.

Students often receive course credit for observing Precinct Caucuses.  However, any student who will be aged 18 years or older as of the date of the next general election (November 5, 2024) and satisfied the other eligibility requirements may (and are encouraged to) fully participate in their Precinct Caucus.
