Precinct caucuses are open to the public. In order to vote, offer resolutions or become a delegate at a precinct caucus, attendees must be eligible to vote in the next general election, live in the precinct and be in general agreement with the principles of the political party.

The Republican Party caucus will be held at the Prairie Inn. Candidates Nancy Taffe and Jeff Backer, who are seeking the party’s nomination to run for the Minnesota House of Representatives in District 12A, are scheduled to attend.

Republicans will also hold a preference ballot for Republican candidates for Governor and U.S. Senate. Caucus attendees will vote for precinct officers and delegates, discuss changes to the party platform, and lay the foundation for the 2014 elections.

The DFL Party caucus will be held at Morris Area Elementary School. DFLers will elect officers and delegates, discuss resolutions and show their support to re-elect Gov. Mark Dayton and Sen. Al Franken. Incumbent Rep. Jay McNamar is also scheduled to attend the caucus.
