Caucus 2022 for SD53 will be different. The cause for the change is COVID-19 and the need to make sure everyone feels safe. Senate District 53 has decided to opt-in to providing our neighbors with the contactless precinct caucus (see below for more details). What that means is that caucus as we know it will not be in person nor will we be electing precinct chairs and vice-chairs. After redistricting, precinct chairs and vice-chairs will be determined at that time. “The central committee of a newly formed organizing unit following redistricting may treat these positions as vacant and fill them or may organize meetings of the individuals who submitted their Precinct Caucus Non-Attendee forms to elect the precinct chair and up to two vice-chairs for each precinct and ratify those elections.”
Although precincts will not be meeting in person, participants must register (click on "registration form" below) with SD53 and fill out an online fillable non-attendee form.
If you are interested in providing a resolution, you must fill out the online fillable resolutions form.
It is also your option to drop off your non-attendee and resolutions forms at Woodbury High School, located at 2665 Woodlane Drive, Woodbury, MN 55125 between the hours of 6:30 pm to 9:00 PM on February 1, 2022. A volunteer will be available to take your forms.
If there is a contest for delegates, SD53 will host an online public Zoom meeting for candidates and others to observe. The meeting will be held (sometime) between February 7 and February 11. We will post updated information on our website, www.sd53.org
, on social media, and via email.
Caucus is an important part of our grassroots efforts in Minnesota. We are flexible enough to ensure your safety without jeopardizing any part that makes us Democrats.
Stay safe and participate from the comfort of your home.
