Minnesota Caucus Information for the Stillwater Area

All political parties in Minnesota – Constitution, Democratic-Farmer-Labor, Green, Independence, and Republican – will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Tomorrow is caucus day in Minnesota.

Precinct caucuses are meetings organized by Minnesota's political parties. At each caucus, the party begins its process of selecting candidates for the 2012 election and policy positions to shape its party platform.

All political parties in Minnesota – Constitution, Democratic-Farmer-Labor, Green, Independence, and Republican – will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7.

The Grassroots and Libertarian parties will not be caucusing in Minnesota this year.

The meetings are on the precinct level, but participants will gather with others at regional locations selected by the parties, which more than likely will not be your normal polling locations.

The Minnesota Secretary of State's Office has a free, online service at mnvotes.org that can be used to find the location of caucus meetings.

On Feb. 7 staff at the office will be available to answer telephone calls at 651-430-6175 until 8 p.m. for individuals trying to find their precinct caucus location.

Caucus attendees discuss public policy issues and pass resolutions, vote in a straw poll, elect precinct officers and elect delegates.

Attendees must be eligible to vote in the 2012 general election, live in the precinct represented at the regional meetings, and be in general agreement with the principles of the political party with which they are caucusing.

Contact information for those parties that will be caucusing Feb. 7 is:
