It is 7 p.m. in Nevada and polls are closing across the state. Here’s what to know about Tuesday’s primaries

It is 7 p.m. PT in Nevada (10 p.m. ET) and polls are closing across the state. Here are key things to know about the primaries being held Tuesday:

On the Democratic side, President Joe Biden is on the ballot along with several other candidates, including Marianne Williamson, and the “none of these candidates” option. Rep. Dean Phillips entered the presidential race after the state’s filing deadline, so he won’t be on the ballot. Nevada Democrats will allocate their delegates based on the results of Tuesday’s primary and 36 delegates are at stake.

On the Republican side, a state-run presidential primary is being held, which will not impact the state’s delegate allocation to the Republican National Convention. Those delegates will be awarded based on the results of the party-run caucuses held on Thursday. Twenty-six delegates are at stake in the caucuses.

Donald Trump is the only major GOP candidate on the ballot in the caucuses. His GOP rival Nikki Haley is the only major candidate on the primary ballot Tuesday and there will also be an option for “none of these candidates.” Nevada GOP rules prevented candidates from participating in both contests, but eligible voters can vote in both.

Trump faces no serious opposition to win the state’s 26 delegates in the caucuses.
