JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Republicans will make their first binding presidential candidate choices on different days next month.

Republicans in most counties will hold caucuses on St. Patrick's Day — March 17 at 10 a.m. Republicans in Jackson County and St. Louis city are waiting a week and will meet March 24. Chariton County in central Missouri is holding its caucus March 15, and southeastern Wayne County is meeting March 16.

Requests to change caucus dates are considered by the state Republican Party chairman.

The results from Missouri's presidential primary earlier this month were not binding for Republicans. The state party opted to use caucuses to determine presidential delegates because the state primary was held too early under national Republican rules.
