Caucus and Convention Planning
This site is intended to provide easy access to the materials you need to prepare for the 2018 caucus and convention cycle. Most of these materials are found in your caucus kits, but they are provided here in electronic form for your convenience.
If you have any questions about caucuses or conventions, please contact Deputy Training & Party Affairs Director Hannah Quinn (651-251-6373 or email@example.com).
