Precinct Political Party Caucuses on February 6

Precinct caucuses are meetings organized by Minnesota's political parties to begin the process of selecting candidates for the 2018 election and policy positions to shape the party platform. Caucuses are a great opportunity to engage directly in the political process at the "grassroots" level.

Precinct caucuses are open to the public and participation is encouraged by the political parties. In order to vote, offer resolutions, or become a delegate at a precinct caucus, attendees must be eligible to vote in the 2018 election, live in the precinct and be in general agreement with the principles of the political party. This year political parties will conduct a straw poll to gauge caucus attendees' presidential candidate preference.

The Republican and Democratic-Farmer-Labor, and Constitution Parties will hold caucuses on Tuesday, February 6, 2018.
