Precinct caucuses, where it all begins

To the Editor:

Minnesota’s political parties will hold precinct caucuses Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m. At a precinct caucus, people talk about issues important to their community, what public policy positions should be adopted as part of a party’s platform and which candidates they will support in the upcoming election.

Precinct caucuses are open to the public. In order to vote, offer resolutions or become a delegate at a precinct caucus, attendees must be eligible to vote in the next general election, live in the precinct and be in general agreement with the principles of the political party.

This is a great way to meet your neighbors and connect about issues important to you. If you have questions about what happens at the precinct caucuses, visit to watch a video outlining a meeting. You can also visit to find out where your precinct caucus is located.

Minnesotans are known nationally for their participation in the political process. Please continue this tradition and attend your precinct caucus, Tuesday, Feb. 4. — Cathy Adamek, Morrison County DFL associate chair, Randall

    Where is all begins is at City Hall. That’s truth. City Councils have the power to enact ordinances that affect the next level of government. Duluth City Council just unanimously passed a Homeless Bill of Rights. Now that’s progress and fair representation. A truly progressive, forward thinking, inclusive City Council. Polar opposite of Little Falls City Council. WAKE UP COMMUNITY! Make your voice heard in politics twice every month. Consider all the free idea speech that’s being wasted by not showing up.
