DFL Senate District 35 Caucuses: Fast, Easy, and Safe!

Save the Date: DFL Senate District 35 Caucus Night is February 1st

Caucuses are the first step in the 2022 elections. Participating begins the process to become a delegate to conventions, and to have a say in endorsements for major races, as well as offering your resolutions for DFL strategy and platform.

Senate District 35 will hold a Contactless Caucus for the health and safety of everyone—this means you just submit your forms—that’s all—see details below!

Here is what you need to know and do:

“Contactless Caucus” will allow two different ways to participate — your choice:

ONE: Electronic Submission

Even though there is no in-person caucus, you can still participate by using the Non-Attendee Form .  This also allows you to submit your name to be a Precinct Chair, Vice Chair, Delegate, and Alternate. You can also submit a Resolution Form for each resolution you want considered for the DFL platform. 

Be sure to carefully fill out all fields in the forms, and sign them. 

Forms can be electronically submitted in 2 ways:

  • Print, fill out and sign a paper form– and then scan as a PDF and send the scan by email
  • Fill out the electronic form directly, including your typed signature—then send by email

Email completed forms to SD35 Chair, Jody Anderson at no later than 9:00pm, Tuesday, February 1, 2022

TWO: In-Person Form Drop-off

If you are unable to submit your non-attendee or resolution forms electronically, you can bring them on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 to the sites below between 6:30 and 9 pm.

  • Three sites in our district will have volunteers to help filling out or dropping-off paper forms—
    • Andover High School — for residents of Andover and Coon Rapids W1P1, W1P2 and W2P1
    • Anoka High School— for Anoka residents
    • Ramsey at Brookside School — for Ramsey residents

 Things to note: Make sure your precinct name and number are listed on the non-attendee form, immediately below your address. If you don’t know your precinct, please reference the DFL Caucus Finder.   

After all information is collected, SD-35 will be contacting you about the next steps in the process.

Remember: you will need to wear a mask and maintain social distancing at the drop off sites.


Thank you for your time and please plan on participating in our Democracy on February 1st!

DFL Senate District 35 Chair

Speaker of the House Trump? It’s Possible with Redistricting.

The U.S. Census Bureau has released its first round of population data, setting in motion the redistricting process in states across the country. This is what author David Daley calls the “gerrymandering Olympics.” Daley, the author of “Unrigged,” says redrawing boundaries is messing with the bedrock of American democracy.
