Wadena County DFL announces Feb. 6 precinct caucus locations

Wadena County Democratic-Farmer-Laborer (DFL) members will gather on Tuesday, Feb. 6 at Wadena-Deer Creek Middle/High School and at Sebeka High School to learn about this year's candidates, debate resolutions for the party platform, elect new precinct chairs, select delegates for the upcoming conventions and take part in a gubernatorial preference ballot.

"Minnesota will be the epicenter of politics in 2018 and precinct caucuses are where it all begins," said DFL Chairman Ken Martin. "Gathered in school gymnasiums, local community centers and town halls, DFLers across the state will build power from the grassroots and set the course for our party in this pivotal election. Whether they are longtime activists or political newcomers, they will play a part in choosing our candidates, determining our platform and shaping our party's future. I encourage all Minnesotans to attend their precinct caucus, engage with their neighbors and make their voice heard."

The local DFL caucuses will take place Feb. 6, beginning at 7 p.m. Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. in both locations.
