Super Tuesday is here, arguably the most significant primary event in the presidential race. And while the candidates duke it out for dominance in 13 states and American Samoa, we just want to fast forward and see the results! Click through to find out when the vote tallies are dropping!
For the remaining two democratic candidates, and the five republicans, Super Tuesday, held on March 1, could be the make or break moment of their campaign. There are a lot of delegates at stake across 13 states and American Samoa; it’s going to be a high tension evening waiting to see the results roll in — and the winners crowned. Click through to find out when the results will be revealed!
Good news! Unlike other primaries and caucuses, there are set closing times for Super Tuesday events. It’s going to be much easier to watch out for victories (and losses) knowing when polls close. But it’s still going to be frustrating, because there are similarities to past primaries; the full results, including delegates won, and percentages of the votes, may roll in just whenever they roll in. Ugh.
The fact is that you’ll see results state by state, but the full dump of who potentially swept the entirety of Super Tuesday may not be revealed until not-so-super Wednesday! But breathe deeply; it’s all coming in due time. Here is when you can expect results, state by state! Do you live in any of these places? Time to go out and vote, and potentially have a major impact on the presidential race! Unless noted, all states are holding both Democratic and Republican events. All times are ET:
4:00pm: American Samoa begins; there is no information on when results will be seen.
7:00pm: Georgia, Virginia and Vermont polls close
8:00pm: Alabama, Massachusetts, Oklahoma and Tennessee polls close
8:30pm: Arkansas polls close
9:00pm: Minnesota, Colorado (Democratic), and Texas polls close. Colorado is holding a Republican caucus, but results won’t be available on Super Tuesday. Texas results may start coming in at 8:00pm, but the polls won’t official close until El Paso finally does at 9:00pm!
Midnight: Alaska polls close
Like Colorado’s GOP event, Wyoming is also holding a Republican caucus on Super Tuesday, but results won’t be seen. Additionally, Democrats abroad are going to start voting on March 1, but their polls won’t close until March 8!
The polls are looking like they’re in favor for Donald Trump, 69, and Hillary Clinton, 68. Trump won his third primary victory in a row on February 23 in Nevada, while Hillary has been going strong, cinching the Nevada caucus as well. Though Bernie Sanders, 74, has been performing well, winning the primary in New Hampshire, he has a significantly less number of delegates than Hillary: 70 to her 503. There’s no way that she could win the nomination on Super Tuesday (you need over 2,000 delegates), but she can jump even further in the lead — and she’s expected to do so.
