2020 Elections

Precinct Caucus – Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Precinct caucuses are meetings run by Minnesota’s political parties. They are the first in a series of meetings where parties may endorse candidates, select delegates and set goals and values (called party platforms). To participate, you must be eligible to vote in the November 2020 general election and live in the precinct. You do not have to be an active member of that party but you must generally agree with the principles of the political party hosting the caucus.

Going to a political party caucus is a great way to show support for a candidate, raise an issue that is important to you, influence who the party will endorse for many offices and meet people in your community. Everything from site location to planning the meeting agenda to conducting preference ballot voting is the responsibility of each party. As such, please contact your political party directly for information and caucus locations.

Presidential Primary Election – Tuesday, March 3, 2020*

In 2016, the MN legislature passed a law establishing a presidential nomination primary election. Only presidential candidates from major parties will appear on the presidential primary ballot. The presidential primary results bind the election of delegates in each party.  Other candidates whose office requires a primary election will appear on the ballot for the August state primary election. Each major party will have a separate ballot and registered voters must request the ballot of the party of their choice. If a voter refuses to select a party, they will not be able to vote in the presidential nomination primary. A voter's choice of party ballot will be recorded and is private data. However, a list of who voted in a presidential nomination primary and the political party each voter selected will be provided to the chair of each major political party. How a voter voted on the ballot will be confidential / secret. Absentee voting is available for this election and starts January 17, 2020.
