Saturday is the first time in years that Missouri Republicans have used the caucus system to help determine which presidential candidate will receive the state's 52 delegates.
It will likely take a week to learn the results of Saturday's caucus across St. Louis County and the entire process won't be completed until the congressional district-level convention in April and the state GOP convention in June.
Queeny Township Republicans gathered at the Saturday morning. You can see the event in the above photo slideshow.
According to Peg Koch, Committeewoman for Queeny Township Republican Committee, Queeny has been allotted 14 delegates, which breaks down to a total of 28 names for each of the District and the State Conventions.
The delegates selected Saturday do not need to declare for a presidential candidate, although they can do so.
Ninety-seven registered voters attended Saturday's caucus. Koch was elected caucus chair and Erin Brown was elected caucus secretary by those in attendance Saturday.
While Republican Presidential Candidiate Rick Santorum made is way around West County Saturday, his wife, Karen Santorum, was initially expected to stop by the Queeny Township Caucus. Koch said she learned that morning that Karen Santorum would not be able to visit the Manchester caucus.
