Representatives of U.S. “territories” are sometimes referred to as “non-voting” Delegates. That is not true of caucus voting, when leadership and committee heads are elected by every caucus member, whether they represent people living in a state or in a territory. “Non-voting” is also inaccurate when the Appropriations Committee canvases all Members of the House of Representatives each year for their views on which federal programs should be funded and at what funding level.
