Primary and Caucus voting in the first few states has gotten the American people excited about the 2016 Presidential election. Each party has received votes from a small number of states – slowly and one at a time over the course of the past several weeks, but that will all change on Super Tuesday. Super Tuesday 2016 falls on March 1st, but many voters still don’t know exactly what it is. On Super Tuesday, the largest group of states will vote in primary elections than at any other point during the 2016 race.
Because more delegates are at stake during this single day than any other, it’s often a turning point for candidate campaigns in Presidential races. Many political experts consider Super Tuesday the first real test of which candidate could win in a national election. This is when we expect to see the 2016 Presidential race really hit 5th gear.
In an election where voter turnout continues to be such a significant factor for all candidates running for President, it’s interesting that so many still don’t know which states are involved in Super Tuesday voting. We’ve broken it down for you, including the number of corresponding delegates for each in our list of Super Tuesday States.
While there are some slight differences in the Democratic and Republican Super Tuesday States, most states will vote for both parties on March 1st. Here is our list of Super Tuesday States and Delegates:
If you happen to live in one of the Super Tuesday states listed above, odds are that you already knew your home-state was included. Voting in Caucus elections is more important than the actual Presidential vote – so we encourage you to get out to your local polling centers and influence the democratic process on March 1st. The rest of the country will have to sit back and watch as results come in on Super Tuesday to find out who will win big.
There’s no question that Super Tuesday voting results will thin the heard even further on the Republican side. Kashich and Carson are the least likely to make it on the campaign trail much past Super Tuesday, while Cruz and Rubio continue to battle for second place in hopes that the other shoe drops for Donald Trump.
