Live updates: Here are results and reactions from Super Tuesday

Mar 5, 2024, 4:00 PM | Updated: 9:29 pm

Voters in 16 states will cast ballots to choose their presidential candidates on Super Tuesday 2024.

Democratic President Joe Biden and former Republican President Donald Trump are expected to compete against each other in the general election in November. However, Republican challenger and former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley is still in the race.

The ballots cast today are expected to reflect how states will vote later in the year.

Why is Super Tuesday 2024 important?

The event, which kicks off in the afternoon, is the second-largest voting day of the year.

Only the general election in November supersedes it in size. The reason why Super Tuesday is so significant during election years is because it represents more than 70% of delegates needed to secure each party’s nominations.

Alaska, Utah and Iowa are holding presidential preference votes and caucuses. The rest of the Super Tuesday states are holding state-run primaries: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia.

Two of the Super Tuesday states — Colorado and Maine — disqualified Trump from their primary ballots due to his connection to the 2021 Capitol insurrection. However, he’s back on the ballots in those states because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Monday decision that the federal government has that decision-making authority — not the states.
