About Us

Membership in this Party is open to all residents of Senate District 56 who support the principles of the DFL Party in Minnesota. No member of any other political party may vote within the DFL Party.

As a result of the 2012 re-districting, Senate District 56 was created. The Senate District is composed of three cities: Burnsville, Lakeville (northwestern corner) and Savage. The District is spread over two counties: Dakota and Scott. Within the three cities, we have twenty-three precincts. SD56 Central Committee Meetings are held the second Monday of every month starting at 6:30 PM.
