2024 Elections

Welcome to SPFE Elections Page. Here you will find information about SPFE endorsed candidates, our criteria for endorsement, upcoming screenings and voting resources. Please visit often for updates on endorsed candidates, public education funding levies, and actions at the Minnesota Legislature.

2024 is a federal election year. In addition to the Presidential Election, Minnesota residents will vote on candidates for the US House and Senate. The Minnesota House of Representatives is up for election, as are some Minnesota Senators. Minneapolis will hold elections to the the MPS Board of Education. Depending on where you live, you may have the opportunity to vote for Mayor, City Council and/or School Board. Due to the SPFE Political Contribution Process (SPFE COPE) SPFE cannot make contributions to ANY federal candidate.

In addition to precinct caucuses on February 27, Minnesota will also participate in the Super Tuesday Presidential Primary on Tuesday, March 5, 2024. This is a partisan primary. You must select a party ballot in order to vote. In Minnesota, you do not need ID to vote, and you can register on the same day.

The Minnesota State Primary will be held on Tuesday, August 13, 2024. You can vote early (by mail or in person) from June 28 – August 12.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 5, 2023. Early voting in Minnesota begins on Friday, September 20, 2024.

2024 Precinct Caucuses and Conventions

The Caucus and Convention process is how delegates are selected. Delegates determine who is awarded a party endorsement prior to a primary (local, state, or national) election. Precinct caucuses are also the place where Party Platforms begin the adoption process. Participating in your local precinct caucus is an important way to influence who may earn an endorsement, and policy on public education. Across the state, many educators will be running for public office for School Board, City Council, Mayor, Minnesota House of Representatives, or Minnesota Senate.

Minnesota Precinct Caucuses will be held on Tuesday, February 27, 2024. You can find your caucus location via the Minnesota Secretary of State Caucus Finder. Delegates chosen at their precinct caucus will have the opportunity to become delegates to the their local City Convention, County Convention, MN House/Senate Convention, US Congressional Convention, and potentially Presidential Convention. You can find a helpful video playlist about caucusing here.
