At Precinct Caucuses, attendees:
- Elect precinct-level (neighborhood) officers to organize the party
- Elect delegates to the Senate District and County Unit conventions
- Begin to shape the party platform
Precinct caucuses are your neighborhood organizing meetings. All precinct caucuses begin at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 6th and will be located in your neighborhood. At the caucuses we’re asking you to do three things:
- Talk to your neighbors and candidates about the values we share and big ideas worth fighting for.
- Run to be a Delegate. Usually becoming a delegate to the Senate District Caucus is as simple as raising your hand and signing up. The delegates to Senate District Conventions get to meet the candidates and ultimately decide which candidates will be endorsed by their political party for the Minnesota Legislature. If we want to make sure we are moving in the right direction, we need to have a voice in who are the options in the general election.
- Introduce Resolutions. Minnesota’s political parties have ongoing platforms, the document that lists the beliefs of the party and the issues the party is fighting for. To add something to the platform, attendees introduce resolutions. This is often as simple as handing copies of the resolutions forward when the chair asks for them.
