Secretary of State's Office Has Its Caucus Locator Operational

For the first time in 28 years, Minnesota voters will be going to the polls to determine delegates in the Presidential Nomination Primary Tuesday, March 3. However, that doesn’t mean the state caucuses are going away.

Caucuses will be conducted throughout the state on Tuesday, Feb. 25 with all scheduled to start at 7 p.m. and run for a couple of hours.

The Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State announced this week that its Caucus Finder feature is operational on its website to help those interested in attending the caucus to find the location. People can find the link by clicking here:

https://caucusfinder.sos.state.mn.us/ 

The webpage will instruct individuals to type in their street address and the locations for the four major parties on the 2020 ballot – Republican, Democrat, Grass Roots/Legalize Cannabis and Legalize Marijuana Now – will be available.

There has been the misconception that the caucuses would be eliminated with the switch to the Presidential Nomination Primary. However, the primary is operated by the State of Minnesota, while caucuses are meetings run by the individual political parties. They will still serve the same function as they always have, including endorsing candidates, selecting delegates and setting the goals and priorities for the party platforms.
