February 25, 2020 - Precinct Caucuses

Precinct caucuses are meetings run by Minnesota’s political parties. They are the first in a series of meetings where parties may endorse candidates, select delegates, and set goals and values (called party platforms).

To participate in the next precinct caucus, you must be eligible to vote in the November 2020 general election and live in the precinct. You also must generally agree with the principles of the political party hosting the caucus.

More details about precinct caucuses are available on the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website.
