What's a caucus?

Minnesota’s major political parties are required to hold caucuses during each statewide election year.

A caucus is the first step for the party to select candidates and choose the party platform. However, at a caucus, there is more going on than just candidate selection. Participants also may select county committee chairs for state and national conventions.

Once again, this article is misleading. The Caucus for 53A is at Woodbury High School. 53B is meeting at East Ridge. So if you are in 53A do not listen to the article - instead go to Woodbury High School.
