What's A Caucus?

Minnesota’s major political parties are required to hold caucuses during each statewide election year. 

A caucus is the first step for the party to select candidates and choose the party platform. However, at a caucus, there is more going on than just candidate selection. Participants also may select county committee chairs for state and national conventions.
