Dear delegate or alternate:

This notice is the official call for the ward conventions and the Minneapolis City Convention. The City Convention’s agenda includes endorsing candidates for municipal office, electing Party officers, and consideration of the Party constitution.

You are receiving this notice because you were elected as a delegate or an alternate at your precinct caucus in March 2005. If you have moved out of the precinct that elected you in March to another precinct in Minneapolis, then you can still participate in your new precinct as the last alternate.

Ward Conventions

The ward conventions will occur at the times and places that appear in the accompanying schedule. For information about a particular convention, please contact the officer or senate-district chair who is listed as the contact for that ward.

Pre-Convention Committees

Each ward elects two delegates, one female and one male, to each pre-City Convention Committee. These committees (Arrangements, Credentials, Nominating, and Rules) will meet on Monday 2 May at 6:30 p.m. in the Jury Assembly Room, Hennepin County Government Center, 300 South Sixth Street, Minneapolis.
