UPDATE 3, 7:38 P.M.: And now it's the Progressives' turn to enter a state of limbo. After an hour of speeches, Prog voters elected to postpone making a decision on a candidate until January. A full recap of all of today's caucus news is coming up soon.

UPDATE 2, 5:05 P.M.: Miro Weinberger has won the Democratic nomination. Vote totals: Weinberger 655, Ashe 533.

UPDATE 1, 2:19 P.M.: The GOP caucus has already started and ended. Burlington Republicans made their endorsement of Kurt Wright official. One caucus down, two to go.
