ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — It's almost Super Tuesday, Minnesota.

Minnesota is one of 12 states casting votes for party nominees on Tuesday. Voters from both parties will gather at schools and community centers across the state to make pitches for their favored candidate, then cast a secret ballot. Next, the counting starts.

It's not a winner-take-all system. Republicans and Democrats alike can win delegates based upon their share of the statewide totals and performance in each of eight congressional districts.

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are battling it out for 77 delegates. Thirty-eight delegates are up for grabs in the five-candidate Republican field.

Democrats are also vying for the attention of elected officials and party bigwigs called superdelegates who pledge their support independent of Tuesday's results. Most have backed Clinton, but could change allegiance.

In Rochester, the Republican caucuses will be held at Mayo High School and the Democrats will meet at Century High School and Willow Creek Middle School.
