What exactly is a precinct caucus, you ask?
Basically, it’s a political meeting held at different locations on the same day and time (this year, it’s next Tuesday, April 4 at 7pm). It’s the first step in the DFL endorsement process for candidates. It's pretty simple. You show up at the meeting location near where you live, meet your neighbors, and hear from the candidates and their supporters. When it's time, you can publicly put your support behind Jillia! You can then get elected to be a delegate for Jillia at your Ward One convention, which is Saturday, April 29. The Ward One convention is where a city council candidate from Ward One will be endorsed by the DFL. (Mayoral candidates and park board candidates will have their own citywide convention this summer.)

3. Become a delegate for Jillia– Quite frankly, it’s the most important part of going to your caucus. By becoming a delegate for Jillia you are committing to attend the Ward One Convention on Saturday, April 29.
