Hubbard County precinct caucuses are Feb. 1
Minnesotans are encouraged to show support for their preferred candidates by participating in the endorsement process that leads up to the state party conventions.
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.
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, you must be eligible to vote in the next general election and live in the precinct. You also must generally agree with the principles of the political party hosting the caucus.
