What happens?


If you haven't attended a precinct caucus before, or even if you have, watch this brief video to learn what goes on.


Gubernatorial Preference Ballot


Beginning at 6:30 p.m. and continuing to 8:00 p.m., each eligible attendee may cast a Gubernatorial Preference Ballot.

  • Balloting will take place in the hallway outside the classroom for your precinct caucus.
  • A person may cast a vote and choose not to remain for other caucus activities.
  • Results of the Gubernatorial Preference Ballot in SD49 will be posted on this website as soon as possible after the votes are counted.


What if I can't attend?


If you can't attend your precinct caucus, and if you would like to be elected as a delegate or alternate to the SD49 Democrats convention, fill out the Absentee Participation Form. (Click here for the form.) Then you can do one of the following:

  • Have someone else bring it to your precinct caucus.
  • Mail it to SD49 Democrats. If it is received by the morning of Saturday, February 3, 2018, it will be given to the convener of your precinct caucus. 


Currently three candidates are competing for the endorsement in House District 49A.  Individuals who reside in District 49A and who wish to submit an Absentee Participation Form should indicate in Section 4 of the form which candidate they support or that they prefer to remain uncommitted.  Anyone who does not provide this information will be considered as uncommitted.


Attendees will vote to determine delegates and alternates; there are no provisions for electronic or absentee voting.




The caucuses will elect delegates and alternates to the SD49 Democrats convention (to be held on March 10), which in turn will elect delegates to various other conventions, including the state convention. The number of delegates allowed per precinct is as follows:
