Why The State Is Significant:

• Colorado is known as a swing state in the general election, and in 2012 voters there picked Barack Obama over Mitt Romney, 51 percent to 46 percent.

• On Super Tuesday, some 1 million voters registered as "unaffiliated" -- the largest voting bloc in the Centennial State -- will not be able to take part in the caucuses because only registered members of major political parties are allowed participate.

Fast Facts:

• In 2016, the state Republican Party is allowing its delegates to pledge to support a candidate at a later time. Thus, no delegates will be awarded to any of the GOP candidates on Super Tuesday.

• Colorado switched from a primary to a caucus system in 2002 and, since then, there have been several attempts to switch back. So far, none of them have been successful.
