Let’s begin with tomorrow.
As we reported earlier, 4 states had been imagined to vote tomorrow. Let’s take a look at the map for which of them these are. We’re speaking huge states right here tomorrow, Illinois, Ohio, Florida, and Arizona. One in every of them, Ohio, is not going to be voting in particular person tomorrow.
With out Ohio, 441 delegates at stake. There are different adjustments that shall be in impact tomorrow as effectively within the states which might be persevering with to vote. A few of these embrace polling locations closing in Maricopa, Arizona, as a result of coronavirus, in addition to dialing again particularly on polling locations which might be in senior dwelling amenities.
