Kentucky Republicans will cast their votes for the Republican Presidential Candidates during the Republican Presidential Caucus on Saturday.

Union County is one of 111 county parties out of the 120 counties in Kentucky that will hold a caucus Saturday. Republican Party of Kentucky officials say the remaining nine counties will participate at a neighboring county’s caucus location.

Union County Republican Party Chairperson Erica Escalara says holding the caucus in Union County is a great opportunity.

There are eleven presidential candidates who have filed with the Republican Party of Kentucky for the presidential caucus. Officials indicate all eleven will remain on the ballot, but there will be signs posted at caucus locations to inform voters about which candidates have dropped out of the race.

Escalara says Saturday will be the only opportunity you will have to vote for a Republican presidential candidate.

Only Union County voters and other voters across the state who were registered as Republicans by December 31, 2015 are eligible to vote in the caucus.

The voting process will be similar to a typical Kentucky election. Registered voters will show identification, sign in and vote by secret ballot. However, officials say the voting locations are different than you normal polling location. Registered Republican voters in Union County will need to go vote at the Grace Fellowship Church, located at 523 US Highway 60 in Morganfield, between 10am and 4pm local time.
