HOW to Propose Resolutions
At Your Local Precinct Caucus on March 1st
At your local precinct caucus, you will have an opportunity to submit a resolution to help shape the political party's platform so that it conforms more closely to your values. This is your chance to bring voice and life to your values and change the way government works in Minnesota (and in our country!).
Any caucus participant may propose a resolution
You may propose as many resolutions as you like. To submit your resolution, you will need to print and fill out the appropriate form for the political party of your choice (DFL Resolutions’ Form and GOP Resolutions’ Form). To propose a resolution:
1) Simply stand to be recognized by the chair and say, "I move this precinct support the following resolution."
2) Then read your resolution.
If your resolution passes, it will be forwarded to the Resolutions Committee of the county or legislative district convention. If it is adopted there, the same process is repeated at the congressional district and state level conventions. Your resolution adopted at your local caucus may become part of your political party's platform!
