DFL to host precinct caucus Feb. 7

Local Democrats will soon be able to caucus.

The local DFL Party’s biennial precinct caucus will take place 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7, at El Parral Ballroom.

At the precinct caucuses, DFLers will cast a Presidential Preference Ballot that will demonstrate their preference in the upcoming election. Attendees will have the opportunity to run and vote for delegates supporting specific candidates or issues to represent the precinct at the upcoming district convention on March 25, 2012. There will also be an opportunity to introduce and debate resolutions for possible inclusion in the Minnesota DFL Party’s platform and elect precinct chairs for the next two years.

The caucuses will begin at 7 p.m. Preference balloting will conclude at 8 p.m. sharp. Ballots may only be cast in person; no absentee balloting is allowed.

Anyone who will be eligible to vote in Minnesota by Nov. 6, 2012 may vote in the preference ballot. Anyone age 16 or over may participate in caucus business.
