RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginians are gearing up to vote today for Super Tuesday — the most important day on the Democratic primary calendar.
When is Super Tuesday?
Super Tuesday is today — March 3. Registered voters in 14 states across the nation, including Virginia, will vote for the Democratic presidential nominee.
Who’s on the ballot?
Currently, there are 14 Democratic candidates on the ballot, but more than half have dropped out of the presidential race.
Here’s who is left:
- Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg
- Former Vice President Joe Biden
- U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders
- U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren
- U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard
The latest poll out Friday from Christopher Newport University puts former Vice President Joe Biden ahead. With the support of African Americans, Biden won the South Carolina primary Saturday.
Voters should note that the presidential candidates who dropped out will still appear on the ballot.
