    The Iowa Republican Party sets January 15 for the first caucus of the 2024 election

    He Republican Party of Iowa announced on Saturday that it will hold the first Republican presidential caucus in the nation on January 15, 2024beginning the selection of the Republican candidate for the presidency of the United States in the 2024 elections.

    Iowa is the first early primary state to announce the date of its Republican election. It has traditionally been first on the schedule, followed by New Hampshire.

    Iowa Republican Party Chairman Jeff Kaufmann said in a statement that the party is “committed to maintaining Iowa’s cherished caucuses, the first in the nation, and looks forward to holding a historic caucus in the coming months and defeating Joe Biden in November 2024.”

    Kaufmann also said, when asked why the GOP caucuses will be held on the federal holiday of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, that “we think this honors the legacy of Martin Luther King.”

    The states of the nation choose their candidates through assemblies or “caucuses” where local party leaders hold group meetings to discuss whom to vote for, or through primary elections in which voters choose from a list of candidates consigned on a ballot paper.

    The primary elections They are run by state and local governments. Voting is done by secret ballot. Some states hold “closed” primaries in which only avowed party members can participate. In an open primary, all voters can participate, regardless of their party affiliation or lack of affiliation.

    the caucuses they are private gatherings run by political parties. They are held at the county, district, or precinct level. In most, participants are divided into groups based on the candidate they support. In the end, the number of voters in each group determines how many delegates each candidate has won.

    Kaufmann, the chairman of the Iowa Republican Party, pointed out that both the Iowa legislature and the executive branch “got ahead” of the plans of the Democrats in that state, who wanted to change the traditional “caucus” system to one of primaries and decided to keep the caucus.

    New Hampshire law requires its primary to be “first in the nation”but has generally come in second to Iowa in terms of vote casting, as that state’s primary is still technically first, given that Iowa uses a caucus system instead.
