Ahead of Super Tuesday top Democrats from across the state and country are campaigning for Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders in Colorado.

Sanders will be appearing at a rally Sunday night at the Moby Arena at Colorado State University. His visit comes about two weeks after he rallied thousands at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

Doors open at 4 p.m. for Sander's rally at CSU. People wanting to attend are encouraged to RSVP .

Former San Antonio Mayor and national democratic leader Julian Castro, U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette and First Lady of Colorado Robin Hickenlooper are among the top Democrats canvassing the state in support of Clinton.

DeGette will stop in East Denver at 5405 East 33rd Avenue at noon on Sunday. She will then stop at 3900 S. Federal in Sheridan at 3 p.m. To attend you are encouraged to RSVP.

The new First Lady of Colorado will be part of a canvassing kickoff in Wheat Ridge at 3300 Youngfield St. at noon. To hear Robin Hickenlooper and attend the event you can RSVP here.

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.

Colorado's caucuses are March 1.  If you need to know where your caucus location is, follow the link for your party:
