Colorado's Republican and Democratic voters will gather in caucuses on Tuesday March 1, but there will be a big difference in the outcomes.

While the state's Democrats will be taking a preference poll for their party's candidates for President, their GOP counterparts will not.

The Republicans decided not to hold a vote after the national Republican Party told them it would have to be binding, and Colorado's party leaders want to remain uncommitted to a candidate in case the person they select is not in the race by this summer's Republican National Convention.

The Democrats will hold a straw poll, but delegates to the convention will not be bound to its outcome.
