Here we go! It's finally 2020, the year we've all been waiting for. Here's our caucus and convention schedule in Golden Valley, MN, and nationally. BUT FIRST: Head here to figure out where you're caucusing according to your senate district and precinct.


In general, the business of the caucuses and convention series is:

  • Election of local party leaders (chairs, secretaries etc., the volunteer electeds who run the party)

  • Election of delegates and alternates to the next level of conventions in the DFL structure

  • Discussion of proposed resolutions to the DFL platform and Action Agenda

  • Endorsement of Candidates

  • Deliberation of party unit constitutional changes

  • Elect Delegates to both the State and National Convention

Less formally, some things that happen are:

  • You meet a lot of people 

  • You get to hear from a lot of candidates who constantly pop in and make stump speeches

  • You get inundated with swag – each lobby so...

The first step in getting involved in the process is to find out where you lie in the electoral maps.

First, find out what senate district you're in: Here's SD46 and here's SD45.

From there, know your precinct number for example you might be in SD45, precinct 2. You'll need to know this to get to the right room at caucus. Check the map below, or check out the Secretary of State's pollfinder info.

Head here to see the caucus and convention schedule for your SD.
