Cass County DFL are your local neighbors and friends. We work to elect endorsed candidates and serve the residents of Cass County by connecting local people with candidates, hosting our annual dinner and pancake breakfast, being present in our local communities by organizing “meet-and-greets”, listening sessions, parade marches, phone banking, door knocking, letter writing, fundraising, putting up lawn signs — whatever needs to be done, that’s what the Cass County DFL does. The more volunteers we have, the more the Cass County DFL can accomplish.

All of our meetings are open to the public. Our Executive Committee meets the second Monday of every month. Meetings are held at various locations around Cass County – check below to see locations and special events.
