At our upcoming forum on January 16, volunteers and staff working with nonprofit organizations will present resolutions that they would like you to consider presenting at your precinct caucus.  Attendees may speak briefly in favor of or against the resolution as happens at a caucus to give you an idea of how the process works.  Though the resolutions will be based on an organization or group's work, not all of them will have been endorsed by the board or members or by our forum partners.  Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity MN provides for all voters to influence the platforms of their parties.

 

Think Again MN is a nonpartisan organization.  We'd like to remind you that campaign literature, signs, clothing, or buttons are not allowed at our forums.  Thank you for remembering this requirement.

Bring Your Own Resolution

 

 

If you have a resolution, you would like to try out, bring it along, and present it to a group of people.  Before you decide on presenting it, check to see if it is on your party's platform.

 

Enter your resolution on the MN Nonpartisan Resolution Form so it can be considered by any political party:

 

To present a resolution at your party's precinct caucus, you will need to use your party's resolution form:

MN 2018 Republican Resolution Form

MN 2018 DFL Resolution Form

You can print the resolution forms or save them in pdf format on your computer by clicking on the small printer symbol to the top right of the forms.  You can fill out the forms by hand.  It is also fine to tape a printed resolution and statements supporting the resolution onto the form.
