Precinct caucuses set for Feb. 5

Chuck Kajer, Managing Editor

Tuesday is precinct caucus day in Minnesota.

The first thing many people ask when they hear that is What does that mean?

Precinct caucuses are local meetings of political parties that are held every two years. These caucuses mark the official start of the election season in Minnesota.

Delegates chosen at the precinct level will attend district or county caucuses. At the caucuses, various issues are discussed, and people can present a resolution stating what position the party should take on various issues. Resolutions passed at the precinct level advance to the next level, and could, if they continue to pass up each level, be considered for the party platform at the state convention.

But the importance of this year's Minnesota Precinct Caucuses is due to the date it is being held. February 5 is Super Tuesday
