Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Yesterday, the United States Democratic Party held primary elections in the US states of Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and Washington. By reports, former Vice President of the United States Joe Biden won the primary elections in Michigan, Missouri, and Mississippi.

As of early today local time, the Associated Press reported no overall results yet for the remaining races between Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont.

The Democratic Party uses primary elections, along with caucuses, to select its nominee for the 2020 United States presidential election. Along with votes from Democrats living overseas, the six primaries yesterday represented 365 delegates. For a candidate to win the Democratic Party's nomination, a total of at least 1,991 delegates are needed.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, the Democratic Party is scheduled to continue its primary season on March 17, with primary elections in Florida, Illinois, Ohio, and Arizona.
