Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Crow Wing County Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party

made the decision to move to contactless precinct caucuses to protect the health of

caucus participants and their communities.

The DFL Party of Minnesota created the option for the local organizing units to move to

a contactless caucus system, in which attendees participate Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022, via

caucus non-attendee forms.

Information on participating in a local DFL caucus, including non-attendee forms,

resolution forms and how to submit them via email, can be found at dfl.org/caucus.

Each local unit also will have an in-person drop box for forms, open from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Tuesday. The Crow Wing County DFL dropoff location is at the Brainerd Lakes

Regional Airport Conference Room.

Throughout Crow Wing County, caucus participants may submit their forms by 9 p.m.

Tuesday at cwcdfl@ gmail.com. Questions also may be directed to the above email

address.
