During the Precinct Caucuses you will be able to cast a Presidential Preference Ballot for the upcoming election.
You will also have the opportunity to run for and vote for delegates to support Sandy Masin as she is seeking the Endorsement of SD38 in the Convention on March 24.
You will also be able to introduce and debate Resolutions to be submitted to the Convention for possible inclusion in the DFL Party Platform.

You may nominate yourself to be a delegate by using a letter form. Download this letter nomination form from the State DFL website, print it, fill it out, SIGN IT and then give it to a friend or neighbor who will be attending the caucuses and ask that the letter be delivered to the CHAIR of your PRECINCT CAUCUS BY 7:15PM.

If you're tired of do-nothing Republicans who refuse to tackle the real issues of creating jobs and getting our economy back on track, please join us at the Caucuses where we'll take the first steps towards re-electing Barak Obama and returning Democratic legislative majorities to Washington and St. Paul!
