Process: Candidates’ representatives will speak on various issues. Participants join groups for the candidate they support. They also can try to, formally or informally, convince uncommitted caucusgoers to join their group. Beatty said the process is “more of a social situation” that can become “raucous.” A head count is taken to determine the results. Candidates must have 15 percent to be a viable group. Those in groups not meeting the minimum can join other groups, though Beatty said with just two major candidates — former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders — obtaining the minimum shouldn’t be a factor.
