(KNSI) - Minnesota's precinct caucuses will be less crowded than in the past due to a change in what goes on at the political gatherings.

That's because the state has shifted its presidential preference process away from caucuses and into a primary election that's part of Super Tuesday next month.

But Democrats and Republicans say important business will still happen at the neighborhood meetups Tuesday evening.

GOP Senate District Chair Sue Rice was a guest on Ox and Friends with KNSI's Dan "The Ox" Ochsner and says two essential things are getting done at the caucuses.

"You want to come and become a delegate or an alternate to the Basic Political Organizing Unit (BPOU) convention. The convention is the place you go to endorse your local candidate. The second reason to come to the caucus is to propose resolutions. Resolutions are to our party platform. The things we believe in."

Both parties will be doing the same thing at their caucuses.

Registration for the caucuses start at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, and the meeting begins at 7 p.m.
