Precincts are geographic neighborhoods, and the politically like-minded people who live within them. Every level in the DFL is built on the grass roots organization that happens in precincts. As precinct leaders, you are the point of contact for neighbors interested in the DFL. You can be the change makers in your neighborhood.

As an official member of the DFL organization for a 2-year term, you are expected to attend the SD62 Central Committee regular meetings monthly and to help elect local progressive candidates by doing the following:

  • Build relationships with precinct caucus participants over the next two years
  • Communicate via emailing, phoning, a blog, or social media
  • Let people know about SD62 and other DFL events
  • Hold precinct events
  • Find more DFLers in your precinct
  • Record and pass along info about others who might help the DFL and campaigns
  • Get people registered to vote
  • Pass out the DFL sample ballot and campaign literature for endorsed candidates
  • Get your precinct DFLers out to vote at election time

Your attendance at SD62 Central Committee regular meetings and work on SD62 projects and events is critical and will give you lots of ideas about things you can do in, and communicate within, your precinct. Your participation within SD62 will also allow you to bring your ideas to the table for adoption and implementation.
