On National Presidential Caucus Day — Friday, December 7, 2007 — thousands of local, self-organized, Internet-enabled, face-to-face gatherings across the country will convene in caucus to discuss and deliberate candidates and the issues. Participants will voice their preferences at their choice of a local Republican Caucus, Democratic Caucus or at an Open Caucus.
Just prior to the Iowa Caucus and the official primary season, organizations and individuals are invited and encouraged to try to elevate their issues, ideas, and candidate preferences to the forefront of the national dialogue by starting or attending a local caucus on National Presidential Caucus Day.
Citizen-led and open, the goals of the National Presidential Caucus are to:
* Help the country better prepare for the vital business of selecting its next president, not in haste, but through 1000’s of informed face-to-face discussions and thoughtful deliberations.
* Foster deeper and more meaningful access to the country’s political system toward the goal of helping revitalize American democracy.
* Create a new voice for those willing to participate in person.

National Presidential Caucus results will be compiled and reported at http://www.nationalcaucus.com after the event.
