Minnesotans have an exciting opportunity to participate in grassroots democracy when precinct caucuses happen on Tuesday, March 1st at 7:00 PM. Precinct caucuses are an important step on the way to the general elections this fall, and by taking part, you can make sure your voice is heard!
For those who are new to the precinct caucus process, it is the first step to nominate candidates who will be on the ballot in November, such as state representative and state senator. You will also help elect precinct officers, form your political party's platform and have the opportunity to support your favorite presidential candidate. To participate, you must be eligible to vote in the November general election, and must generally agree with the principles of the political party hosting the caucus in which you participate.
To find the location of your precinct caucus, be sure to visit the Minnesota Secretary of State's voter website at www.mnvotes.org and use the caucus finder link. The site also gives more in depth background on the caucus participation process for newcomers, as well as links you to the DFL, GOP and minor political party websites in Minnesota.
So join your neighbors on Tuesday, March 1st at 7:00 PM and help be part of grassroots democracy in action!
