Precinct Caucuses - March 5, 2002
Precinct Caucuses are set for Tuesday, March 5, 2002. These are the traditional caucuses, where resolutions are voted upon and delegates selected for the Senate District Convention. Because of redistricting and the possibility of Representative Entenza running for Attorney General, SD64 is having two conventions this year. The first "old district" convention will he held March 12, 2002 (location TBA, but probably Highland Sr. High). Registration at 6:30 p.m. - done by 9:00. The only business to be conducted is voting on resolutions from the precinct caucuses and selecting State Convention Delegates.
So if you want to have a say in who gets the DFL endorsement in State-wide races, get to your Precinct Caucus and get elected as a delegate to the SD64 convention. Once selected as a delegate, you can attend both the "old" and "new" SD64 conventions. Just one week later, you'll be picking delegates to the DFL State Convention in May.
The second "new district" convention will be held on May 18 at Highland Senior High from 9 a.m. to noon (longer if 64A needs a new candidate). We hope to welcome some new people as SD64 grows!
