What happens at a precinct caucus?

While each party’s meeting is different, there are generally at least three things you can do at a precinct caucus meeting:
  1. Vote in a 'straw poll,' or unofficial election, for the person you want the party to support to be the next Governor of Minnesota.
  2. Choose who you want to represent your precinct at future party meetings. Those meetings will decide the final list of candidates and issues the party will support in 2018.
  3. Sign up to be an election judge, and more!
