The Minnesota presidential election caucuses are coming up and Metro State Votes 2016 invites you to learn more about the process at Caucus 101. This training event is 4:30–6 p.m., Monday, Feb. 22 at Library and Learning Center, Ecolab 302, 645 East Seventh Street, Saint Paul.

Precinct caucuses are meetings organized by Minnesota’s political parties to begin the process of selecting candidates for the 2016 election. In addition, people who attend caucuses can influence the issues their party will stand for by offering resolutions. Caucuses take place in locations across the state, are open to the public and encourage participation.

At the Caucus 101 Training, you’ll learn:

  • What a precinct caucus is and why it is important
  • What to expect when you attend your caucus
  • How to write a resolution and get it passed
  • How to stay involved by becoming a delegate for local and state-wide conventions

The caucus training is led by Metropolitan State faculty members Kathleen Cole, Shaun Williams-Wyche and Andrew Fay. Light refreshments are provided. Register for free at this link.
