Minnesota's DFL and Republican parties have set March 1 as the date for their 2016 precinct caucuses.
It’s no coincidence that the date falls on so-called “Super Tuesday,” when eight other states hold their primaries and caucuses. “The March 1st date allows us to meet the respective presidential nominating calendars of each party, and we believe it will make Minnesota more relevant in the process,” said Minnesota Republican Party Chairman Keith Downey.
Prior election-year caucuses in Minnesota have been held in February. By waiting until March, Minnesota joins Colorado, which also has a caucus system, Florida, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia, which hold primaries.
As usual, Iowa will hold the first test of the season with caucuses on Jan. 18, 2016, followed by the New Hampshire primary on Jan. 26.
We hope you attend your precinct caucuses proudly as a young republican!
