As of 7:32 p.m. Eastern, Trump was expected to win, with the race likely being called by 8 p.m. Eastern.

Here are some highlights from the primary today.

How the Primary Works

Unlike a caucus, primary works like any other election, where people vote at their polling locations during a specified time period. Polls open at different times, depending on the location. Many didn’t open until 11 a.m. Eastern, but some opened as early as 6 a.m. Most close at 7 p.m. but some may stay open until 8 p.m.

According to The Green Papers, the following candidates are on the ballot today, including the incumbent President Donald Trump.

  • Robert Ardini
  • R. Boddie
  • Stephen Bradley Comley, Sr.
  • Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, Jr.
  • Robert “Bob” Moulton-Ely
  • Lawrence Robert “Larry” Horn
  • Zoltan Gyurko Istvan
  • Richard “Rick” Kraft
  • Star Locke
  • Matthew John “Matt” Matern
  • Mary Maxwell
  • Eric Merrill
  • William N. Murphy
  • Juan Payne
  • Donald John Trump
  • Joe Walsh
  • William Floyd “Bill” Weld

Although most polling sites don’t close until 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. Eastern, some results are in early. A few small cities had traditional polls at midnight, for example.

During the Iowa Caucus, Trump and Weld were the only ones on the ballot. Trump got 97.14 percent of the vote and Weld got 1.54 percent of the vote.

The Republican National Convention for 2020 is August 24-27 at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. It will take place after the Democratic National Convention, which is July 13-16. The RNC President this year will be Marcia Lee Kelly, former White House Director of Management and Administration.

Charlotte was ultimately chosen as the location for the RNC after Las Vegas was also considered. Their locations in swing states made them the top picks. In 2012, Charlotte hosted a Democratic National Convention, but the city has not hosted a Republican National Convention before. There are 2,440 soft pledged delegates and 110 soft unpledged. So far Trump has 97 soft pledged delegates and Weld has picked up one.
