YOU have the power!
The 2021 caucus and convention are here! You can participate in the virtual caucus and convention process to decide who the DFL endorses in the Ward 10 City Council race.
In a ward where 95% of voters vote for a Democratic candidate, the DFL endorsement holds a lot of weight with Ward 10 voters come November.

Mark your calendar!
April 1-30: Sign up to Caucus
Caucus sign-up lasts until the end of April. On April 27, there will be a virtual caucus event. This event is not required to attend to sign-up to caucus.
May 12-May 18: Caucus Balloting
Everyone who signed up to caucus will get their ballots either by email or by text. Then, you’ll have 7 days to submit your ballot.
The essential function of the caucus is to choose who will become a delegate at the convention. The number of caucus-goers supporting each candidate determines how many delegates that candidate will send to the convention. It’s just as easy to be a delegate as it is to caucus, and that’s where the real power lies.
June 2-June 8: Convention Balloting
This is when you’ll submit your ballot for the convention. There will be a Ward 10 virtual convention the weekend of June 5-6, but like the virtual caucus, this event is optional for delegates.
Convention ballots will use a Ranked-Choice Voting system. You will be able to rank your choices of candidates or “no endorsement.” Each “round” will have a support threshold to advance to the next round. If a candidate does not meet that threshold, their votes will go to their second option. If Katie reaches 60% support after all rounds, she will win the endorsement!
