(Boone County, Ky.) – Kentucky Republican voters will caucus to select their presidential nominee on Saturday, March 5.

2016 marks the first time Kentucky has held a caucus. It was approved by the GOP so that Senator Rand Paul could run for president while also being able to retain his seat in the Senate, which is up for grabs this year.

Caucuses will run from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Saturday. Boone County Republicans will caucus at Florence Baptist Church, 642 Mount Zion Road, in Florence.

In Gallatin County, the caucus will be held at the Gallatin County Extension Office, 395 U.S. 42, in Warsaw.

Caucus goers will cast their ballots for Republican candidates for president. Donald Trump, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and Ohio Governor John Kasich remain in the race. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said this week he sees no path

Kentucky’s regular primary election for other elected offices will still be held on Tuesday, May 17.
