2024 Caucus | Tuesday Feb. 27 @ 7pm

Caucus is the entry point into Republican Party leadership and stewardship. The Party starts with you.

It's Time to Get Ready for the 2024 Caucus!

Every two years the Republican Party recreates itself beginning with Caucus. Those that attend caucus elect the precinct and ward officers, and delegates to the Minneapolis Republican Party, Congressional District 5 and State Party conventions.
Precinct delegates are the trustees of the party. They choose delegates to other conventions, endorse candidates and decide issues. Precinct officers connect with supporters and work with candidates. This is the true grassroots origination point. You work with your Republican neighbors on local and state issues, have your voice heard and influence the direction of the party.

What Happens at Caucus

Attendees are seated with their precinct. A precinct is the geographical area that shares one polling location, it is the smallest political unit and there are 137 of them in Minneapolis. Your precinct will elect its own leadership. You will also elect your delegation to the District Convention, where you will choose candidates and elect delegates to the Congressional District 5 and State Republican Conventions. The Congressional Convention elects delegates to the RNC National Convention in Milwaukee.

Become a Ward or Precinct Chair 

It’s fun, interesting, and real-world civics. You get to meet fellow Republicans in your neighborhood, learn how the system works and have an active role in the direction of the party. It’s a quiet, non-confrontational role; you are not a public candidate, just someone helping build the party. We will provide leadership guidance and training, but you get to make it your own. A Republic is defined by its representatives, this is your opportunity to discover and experience real-world leadership on a manageable scale.
  • A Precinct Chair represents their Precinct in Ward Meetings, Conventions and Campaigns
  • A Ward Chair represents their Ward in District Meetings, Conventions and Campaigns
  • The time commitment is up to you: from attending occasional meetings to organizing activists and helping candidates connect with your neighbors.

If you are interested in running for Ward Chair, you must contact us by Feb. 12, 2024. Nominations from the floor at Caucus will not be allowed. If you are unable to attend Caucus, you may still run for Ward chair and have someone speak for you in your absence.
