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

Voters in Colorado were among those in more than a dozen other states who headed to the polls on Super Tuesday to weigh in on their preferred pick for the Republican and Democratic presidential nominations in the 2024 general election.

Republican voters will choose between front-runner Trump and his challenger, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Trump entered Tuesday boosted by a major last-minute win from the U.S. Supreme Court decision Monday that said Colorado — and by extension, other states — could not exclude him from the ballot based on the 14th Amendment.

In December, Colorado’s Supreme Court knocked Trump off the ballot in a 4-3 decision, becoming the first state to do so. After Monday’s Supreme Court ruling, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold called the decision “disappointing” on X, the social media platform previously known as Twitter.

“Colorado should be able to bar oath-breaking insurrections from our ballot,” Griswold said on X.

Meanwhile, Biden doesn’t face a formidable opponent, but his support took a hit in Michigan from frustrated voters who did not agree with his handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict. Advocates in other states are also pushing for voters to denote “uncommitted” as their selection on the ballot Tuesday.

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

Heading into Tuesday, the former president 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 delegates in our delegate 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.

In addition to Trump and Haley, Colorado’s GOP ballot also includes Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Ohio entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Texas businessman Ryan Binkley.

On the Democratic side, the ballot also includes Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips and self-help author Marianne Williamson. Statewide voters who fill out the Democrats’ ballot will also have the option of voting for an “uncommitted delegate” who could then be sent to the party’s nominating convention this summer.
