Attend Your Caucus

Attend Your Precinct Caucus

Minnesota operates on a precinct caucus system. Caucuses are organized and run by the political parties. Going to a caucus is a great way to show support for a candidate, raise an issue that’s important to you, influence who the party will endorse for many offices, and meet people in your community. While there may not be library issues discussed at the caucus, you can meet the candidates/incumbents. Learn more here.

Things to know about the caucuses:

  • To participate, you must be eligible to vote in the November 2018 general election and live in the precinct. You also must generally agree with the principles of the political party hosting the caucus.
  • The caucuses are the first in a series of meetings where parties may endorse candidates, select delegates, and set goals and values (called party platforms).
  • In 2018, you will vote for who you want to be the party's nominee for Governor

All caucuses are February 6, 2018 at 7:00 pm. Use the Secretary of State's Precinct Caucus Finder.

You can learn more about Elections & Voting on the Secretary of State web site.
