(NewsNation) — Decision Desk HQ projects Democratic incumbent President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump the winners of their respective primaries in Arkansas.

Arkansas voters headed to the polls for Super Tuesday, the largest delegate haul in the presidential primary election.

Voters in 16 U.S. states and territories will voice their pick for the presidential nomination. Republican voters will choose between front-runner Trump and his opponent, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Meanwhile, Biden remains the leading Democratic candidate, despite losing some popularity among Michigan voters over his handling of the Israel-Hamas war. Trailing behind Biden are Democratic challengers Marianne Williamson and Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, who are also vying for the presidency.

Polls in Arkansas close at 7:30 p.m. CT. You can track the results of Tuesday’s primary election in the trackers below as results come in:

Heading into Tuesday, former President Trump had 221 delegates, while Haley had 43. On Tuesday, 865 GOP delegates and 1,420 Democratic delegates will be up for grabs, and you can track each candidate’s numbers in our tracker here. To clinch the nomination, Trump will need 1,215 delegates of the 2,429 available, so he will not win outright Tuesday, though success on the night will mean he’s much closer to the goal.

Arkansas voters also have the chance to make history in two races for the state Supreme Court. Candidates in the running have the potential to become the first Black justice and the first woman elected to lead the court.
