As the primaries progress, the Democratic and Republican nomination will be decided by which candidate totals up the largest number of awarded state delegates from each caucus or primary vote. The complete delegate counts are listed below and updated frequently after each primary or caucus date. Each party has its own set of rules governing the number of delegates.
For a list of how many delegates are at stake in each state, see the 2016 Primary Schedule.
Note: Delegate count will be updated within 24 hours following primary contests. It takes time for the vote totals to be certified and for accurate numbers to be released.
