Where do I go to caucus this year?

The location for the precinct caucuses depends on which MN House district you reside in:

  • House District 66A: Roseville Area High School
  • House District 66B: Washington Technology Magnet School

Not sure which district you’re in? Enter your address at the Secretary of State’s polling place finder website and then check the information in the Districts for this Address section.

To save yourself time on the night of the caucuses, you can look up the classroom your precinct is assigned to in advance. Precinct classroom assignments will be posted on our website soon.

What if I have a scheduling conflict?

If you cannot attend your precinct caucus but would still like to participate, you must fill out this non-attendee form (or write a letter containing all the required information) and send us an email with the form or letter attached. Alternatively, you can have a neighbor bring it to the precinct caucus for you, or you can drop off your completed form at our February Central Committee meeting (check our Calendar).

How do I request accommodations?

Accommodations information and the request form is available on the State DFL website and must be requested 14 days prior to the event.

How do I vote in the presidential preference ballot?

There will be no presidential preference ballot at the DFL caucuses this year. Instead, the statewide Presidential Primary will be held on Tuesday, March 3rd. You can vote early in person or by mail beginning Friday, January 17th. More information is available on the Secretary of State website, and you can request an absentee ballot here.

What’s next after the precinct caucuses?
