Precinct caucuses set for Feb. 7

Precinct caucuses will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7 across Minnesota.
The caucuses are open to the public and provided by four of Minnesota’s political parties — Republican, Independence, Green, and Democratic-Farmer Labor, according to Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie.
During these meetings political parties will begin the process of selecting candidates for the 2012 election, Ritchie said. Caucus attendees are encouraged to offer policy ideas (resolutions) that may go on to become party policy positions. Caucus attendees interested in voting, offering resolutions or serving as a delegate at a precinct caucus must be eligible to vote in the 2012 general election, live in the precinct and be in general agreement with the principles of the political party, he said.
Republicans will also vote in a presidential straw poll at the caucuses; DFLers will cast a presidential preference ballot.
