Monday evening's Iowa caucus is the official start of the 2016 presidential primary season. All eyes will be on the Hawkeye State as Republican and Democratic voters turn out to caucus for their candidates, ultimately resulting in the first state to decide who it selects for the two parties' nominations.

The proceedings are set to begin at 7 p.m. CST in the state’s 99 counties. The caucuses are expected to take several hours, with results pouring in around 10 or 11 p.m. local time. For a brief primer on how each party's complicated caucusing process works, check out the explainer video here.
