Minnesota's 2018 precinct caucuses begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6.

Precinct caucuses are the first in a series of meetings where the parties may endorse candidates, select delegates and set the party platforms for upcoming elections.

Voters will also include a preference ballot for the candidates they want their parties to support in the gubernatorial election in November.

According to the Minnesota Secretary of State's website, to participate, residents must be eligible to vote in the November general election and live in the precinct. They must also generally agree with the principles of the political party hosting the caucus.
