The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a letter encouraging Utahns to participate in local caucus meetings, the Mormon Newsroom reported Friday.

The letter, which will be read in Utah congregations, reminds church members that caucus meetings will be held Tuesday, March 18, and Thursday, March 20.

"We ask that local leaders not schedule meetings on these Tuesday and Thursday evenings so members may attend a caucus meeting of their choice," the letter stated.

Church leaders also reaffirmed the LDS Church's political neutrality and reminded members that church facilities and meetings are not to be used for political purposes.
