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.

Ward 4 precincts (in SD64): Ramsey Jr High
Don't know your precinct? Find it at the Secretary of State's Database. The results will show your polling place and, below that, precinct name, in the format of ST PAUL W-3 P- 5. Translated, it means Saint Paul's Ward 3, Precinct 5 (your particular ward and precinct may vary).
Remember, this is precinct caucus night, not election night, so don't show up at your polling place.

More information will be posted as it becomes available. I hope we see you there.
