The heads of Minnesota's three major political parties joined forces Tuesday to encourage voters to turn out Feb. 4 for caucus night.

The caucuses, which kick off at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, offer Minnesotans a chance to endorse candidates for major offices and shape party platforms. To find your local precinct location, you can either visit the Secretary of State's web page, or the state Democratic and Republican parties. The Independence Party of Minnesota is also offering the option of participating in a virtual caucus online.
