Can someone check to make sure my Google form response was successfully recorded?

Unfortunately, due to the volume of emails we are dealing with, we are unable to check to see whether your Google form response went through. However, you should have received a confirmation email. If you did not receive a confirmation email, please email a non-attendee form to sd66dfl@gmail.com.

Can someone check to make sure SD66 DFL received the non-attendee form I emailed in?

Unfortunately, due to the volume of emails, we are unable to reply to everyone individually. If you submitted a non-attendee form, please double check the form you sent in to see whether you answered Question #3 and whether you requested to become a delegate. If you need to make any corrections to your non-attendee form, please email a new one to sd66dfl@gmail.com (we will treat the most recent form as the correct one).

I thought there were going to be virtual caucuses. Where is the Zoom link?

Unlike last year’s St. Paul DFL caucuses, there will not be any online caucus meetings or Zoom calls on caucus night.

How we are supposed to caucus and vote on candidates and resolutions from our precinct?

There is no candidate voting tonight, as there is no preference ballot. All resolutions at the precinct level are being automatically passed and will be considered at the senate district/organizing unit convention. Delegates to the senate district/organizing unit convention will vote on endorsements later this spring.

How do I vote for MN House/Senate candidates? How do I become a delegate to the senate district/organizing unit convention?

There is no candidate voting tonight. Delegates to the senate district/organizing unit convention will vote on endorsements later this spring.

Anyone who expresses their interest in becoming a delegate or alternate will be selected either:

  1. Automatically if there are fewer people wishing to become delegates than total delegate slots.
  2. By lot if there are more people wishing to become delegates than slots. In precincts where lots are drawn, there will be an in-person event and live web broadcast to view the results. Please check this website after the caucuses for details on when the broadcast will be streamed.

There is no preference ballot. Senate district delegates will vote at our organizing unit/senate district convention to elect delegates to the congressional unit convention.
