Are You Going To Vote On Super Tuesday? Here’s Where You Can Vote In El Paso
There has been a lot of talk about primary elections and caucuses for the past few weeks, but Super Tuesday is finally here. So what is Super Tuesday?
Texas, and other states, hold primaries and caucuses on one day. Presidential hopefuls need to get as many delegates to the nominating convention as they can during primaries and caucuses in the hopes of being the uncontested candidate for either the Democratic or Republican party. Since President Trump is a lock for the nomination on the Republican side (even though there are a number of other people on the primary ballot), most of the attention will be on the Democratic primaries and caucuses. If there isn't a candidate with a majority, or 1,237, of the delegates in the primaries, there might be a contested Democratic convention.
If you plan on vote today, you need to be registered to vote already. Before you head out you can take a look at the sample Democratic ballot by clicking here.
