Precinct Caucuses

Tuesday, February 1, 2022, is a special date for grassroots democracy in Minnesota. That evening, DFL precinct caucuses are held state-wide and are open to all democrats. These voter-driven meetings are a great way to get involved in the democratic process and make your voice heard—even if you’ve never been to a political meeting before. Be sure to attend the caucus specific for the precinct that you live in!!

  • When: February 1, 2022; registration starts at 6:30 pm. Each precinct caucus convenes at 7:00 pm.

  • Where: Attendees must attend the precinct caucus site related to their residence within their precinct. See the map to find where your precinct meets.

  • What: Each precinct elects a precinct Chair, two Vice-Chairs, delegates and alternates (to attend the subsequent Beltrami County DFL convention and a separate Senate District Convention), and Pre-Convention Committee members. Each precinct also votes on Resolutions for proposed changes to the State DFL's Party Platform and Action Agenda and casts reference ballots for Governor.

  • How (for Non-Attendees): Even if you cannot attend your precinct caucus in person, you may 1) submit a resolution, 2) run for a position as an officer in your precinct, 3) run for a delegate or alternate position to the Beltrami DFL County Convention (and separate Senate District Convention), or 4) run to serve on a Pre-Convention Committee as follows: Download and submit a Precinct Caucus Non-Attendee Form. If you wish to submit a non-attendee Resolution, (1) download and complete a Resolution Form and (2) attach it to a completed Precinct Caucus Non-Attendee Form. You can have someone else deliver your completed forms to your specific precinct caucus on caucus night. Alternatively, your completed Form(s) can be delivered by one of the following methods and must be received by Saturday, January 29, 2022: (1) mail to Beltrami County DFL, PO Box 1063, Bemidji, MN 56619, or (2) pick up a blank form(s) in the vestibule of the Beltrami County DFL Headquarters office (open 24 hours a day; 1510 Bemidji Ave N, Bemidji), fill out, and insert in the secure deposit box on the west side of the building. Remember, for these two methods of delivery, the form must be received by Saturday, January 29, 2022.
