(ABC 6 News)-- Next week will be the first of the political caucuses to kick off the election year. Minnesota's first step in the election cycle will start on Feb. 6.
In efforts to demystify the caucuses, the League of Women Voters held a caucus training to get people informed on the candidates and the issues on the local and state level.
The League of Women Voters is a group that supports democracy.
The league's President, Kim Norton said, "We want to educate people about the issues and how we can give them the opportunity to talk about their city council members, county board members, and legislators."
She also spoke about the importance of pre-caucus training for the community.
"It's an opportunity for people to come to talk to their neighbors," Norton said.
The League of Women Voters will also have a discussion of civility in the media and politics in April.
