Minneapolis Democrat-Farmer-Laborer Party:
This year, the entire process will be conducted virtually. To participate, register for your precinct’s virtual caucus between April 1 and April 30 at caucus.dfl.org starting April 1. Know someone who can’t register online? Tell them to call (612) 552-4215 or text “2021” to (612) 712-7461.
Once you register you will receive a postcard with a confirmation code as well as an email with a link. There, you can indicate your candidate preference as well as whether you want to be a delegate to the virtual ward and city conventions. Between May 12 and May 18 everyone who has registered can vote for their precinct’s delegates to the city and ward conventions. These delegates will then vote on the DFL endorsement for Mayor, City Council, Park & Recreation Board, and Board of Estimate and Taxation.
