Countdown to Caucus
Updated: Feb 22
At 7pm on February 25th, Minnesotan's will have a chance to participate in one of the most important nights in our politic process: caucus night.
If you haven't participated before, you might be wondering what it's all about and how you can get involved - or how you can help even if you don't live in the district.
Here's a quick break down:
What's a Caucus?
Simply put - a caucus is where neighbors get together to discuss policies and consider endorsing candidates. Any resident can participate - and just showing up is a great step if you have never attended one.
The DFL precinct caucuses are held on February 25th, 2020 at 7pm, where voters will discuss the party platforms and select delegates. Want to find out where to go?

A "precinct" is your voting district - determined by where you live. When you attend the caucus, which are held at schools throughout the district, you'll go to a room or area with other neighbors also in your precinct.
A "delegate" is an important but easy role: delegates are selected from each precinct to attend the district convention (The District 39 convention is on Saturday, March 28th). Want to be a delegate? Just raise your hand at the caucus!
What if I don't live in the district?
You can help hang signs, or even speak on behalf of the candidate. Interested? Please reach out! Shoot the campaign an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or submit your information: https://www.seanryanforsenate.com/let-s-talk
What happens next?
The delegates will be tasked with endorsing state candidates at the District Convention - like the senate race for this campaign!
So, if you're wondering "am I qualified to be a delegate?" - here are the questions to ask yourself:
1. Am I eligible to vote in this district for the 2020 election?
2. Am I interested having a voice in changing in our politics for the better?
If you answered yes to both questions... You're qualified - and get ready to participate on Feb 25th!
