The Mille Lacs County Republican Party has chosen Milaca High School in Milaca as the location for its 2012 precinct caucuses. Caucuses are scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 7, beginning at 7 p.m. All precincts in the county will meet at the same location.
A feature of the 2012 caucuses will be a presidential election straw ballot. All caucus attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their preferred candidate among the seven contenders in the Republican Party primary.
The primary business of the caucuses is to select delegates to the Mille Lacs County Republican Convention, which will take place later in February. Caucus attendees also can offer amendments to the Republican Party platform by way of resolutions presented to the caucus.
The Mille Lacs County DFL Convention will be Saturday, March 17 at the American Legion Hall in Milaca. The district DFL conventions will be announced at a later time.
