Remember the adventures of my friend PiD at the Reno caucuses last month? There were lots of problems in dealing with the head-counting and percentage-computing required by the caucus process. (Well, it was tricky stuff, you know: Like trying to figure out what support there was for one candidate in a two-person race if the other had 59%. Math is hard!)
Not to worry! The Obama campaign in Colorado has posted a training video on its website, the Colorado Caucus Center. The video segments include finding training meets, determining your caucus location, and the step-by-step process on caucus night. Best of all, there's a comforting note that you can participate in the Colorado caucuses even if you don't know any math. (Ooh, math!)
The Caucus MathIsn't that a comfort? Someone else will do all the math for you and you can just take their word for it. After all, we live in a era of political honesty and trust, right?
Math is involved to determine the outcome of the Colorado caucuses. Only the people in charge will have to do math. This interactive tool will help you understand how it works.
