Caucus is one of the most powerful and engaging political events you will ever see. Minnesota is part of an exclusive group of states that holds these grassroots neighborhood meetings where we get together with our friends every 2 years to plan a revolution.
What is it? Caucus is the ground floor of a Democratic Republic. Republicans that share your polling place (precinct) gather on this one night to elect representatives to attend party conventions on their behalf to endorse candidates and conduct party business. They also choose a leader for their precinct to help inform the community and get out the vote in November. And of course, they vote for whom they wish to be the Republican Candidate for President of the United States.
If you haven't attended caucus before, you should, it's real-world participatory civics, a great chance to meet your like-minded neighbors and an opportunity to have your voice heard. Plus, this year the ballot you cast for president is binding. What does that mean? You can find out March 1st!
