What is a Caucus?

The Minneapolis caucuses are political party that hosts neighborhood conversations on what your local political party should be focusing on. There will also be candidate campaigns who are seeking the support from you to get the local party's endorsement. You can volunteer to become a delegate at the Precinct Caucus to move on to meet about resolutions and endorsing candidates in the Ward Convention (City Council) & City Convention (Mayoral & Park Board). Remember, you have to be voted by your neighbors in your ward to become a delegate in every step (Caucus, Ward Convention & City Convention)
