Super Tuesday was an intense night with 1,344 pledged delegates at stake. The path to the Democratic nomination is still anyone’s to win. After Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar both recently dropped out of the running, the field has narrowed significantly. The main contenders on the ballots now are Joe Biden, Mike Bloomberg, Tulsi Gabbard, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Heavy partnered with Decision Desk to bring live results from Super Tuesday from every state. Polls began closing at 7 p.m. Eastern, with the last polls closing in California at 8 p.m. Pacific.
In the first section, you’ll see the live results along with a live delegate tracker. In the second section, you’ll see news about the election, updated throughout the night.

Live Delegate Results, Including Buttigieg’s & Klobuchar’s Delegates
A delegate tracker is below. This tracker currently shows the delegates from all the elections so far, but it will be updated to include Super Tuesday results as they are known.
The DNC released a memo the night before Super Tuesday explaining what happens to Buttieigeg’s and Klobuchar’s delegates now that they dropped out of the race. The DNC said in its released rules: “it should be noted that pledged delegates to the Democratic Convention are not legally ‘bound’ to vote for the candidate for whom they were elected. Rather, they are ‘pledged in all good conscience [to] reflect the sentiments of those who elected them.’ [Rule 12.J] Under Democratic rules, delegates are always able to vote for their candidate of choice. Because presidential campaigns have the right to review and approve delegate candidates prior to their selection, delegates generally do remain committed to vote for their preferred candidate as long as their candidate is still viable. In cases where a candidate asks his/her delegates to support another candidate, or where a candidate who has accrued delegates drops out — it is the delegate’s prerogative to either follow the candidate’s request or to vote for the candidate of their choice.”
