Live Results: April 2 Presidential Primaries and Other Elections

A fairly busy start to April, with a mix of contests. Four states are holding presidential primaries.  There are also runoff elections from state primaries last month, legislative special elections, and mayoral elections.

President

Both Donald Trump and Joe Biden have had their respective nominations locked up for several weeks. It is likely each will win the vast majority of the available delegates on Tuesday.

April 2 delegate counts include those for Delaware, where the scheduled presidential primaries were canceled.

Visit the Democratic Delegate Tracker to see full results by state and candidate.

Visit the Republican Delegate Tracker to see full results by state and candidate.

Live results follow. States are listed alphabetically. 

Connecticut

Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Delaware (Canceled)

Under state law, no primary is held when there is only one candidate on the ballot. As only Joe Biden qualified for the Democrats, that primary was called off months ago. For the GOP, Nikki Haley's withdrawal occurred after the ballot deadline. However, legislation was quickly passed to allow that primary to be canceled as well. 

New York

Polls close at 9:00 PM Eastern Time. 

For Democrats, New York is the second largest delegate prize, trailing only California. It is fourth on the GOP side, behind California, Texas, and Florida.

Rhode Island

Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Wisconsin

Polls close at 9:00 PM Eastern Time.

Primary Runoffs

For those Arkansas (March 5) and Mississippi (March 12) primary contests where no candidate received a majority of the vote, the top two finishers advanced to a runoff to determine the nominee. 

Mississippi polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern, while voting in Arkansas wraps up at 8:30 PM Eastern.

Mississippi U.S. House District 2 (Republican)

Arkansas State House Districts 35 and 63 (Democratic)

Arkansas State House District 88 (Republican)

Legislative Special

Alabama State House District 27 (Primary)

Republicans hold a dominant 75-28 lead over Democrats in the Alabama House of Representatives. There are two vacancies. Members serve four-year terms; the next elections are in 2026.

District 27 sits between Huntsville and Gadsden. Republican Wes Kitchens was elected to the State Senate earlier this year. Kitchens won by an 89% to 11% margin over his Democratic challenger in 2022. 

No Democrats are contesting the seat, so the winner of the GOP primary will almost certainly be the next representative.

There are six candidates on the ballot, so an April 30 runoff is possible. Polls close at 8:00 PM ET.

South Carolina State House District 109

Republicans hold a large 88-35 edge in the South Carolina House of Representatives. Members serve two-year terms; the next elections are in November.

The one vacancy is in District 109, located to the northwest of Charleston. Democrat Deon Tedder resigned after winning a State Senate election last November. 

No Republicans ran here. Democrat Tiffany Spann-Wilder won the January primary; she is unopposed on the general election ballot.

Polls close at 7:00 PM Eastern Time.

Mayoral

Population rank is based on the July 1, 2022 Census Bureau estimates. These are for the city itself, not the associated metropolitan area.

Both these elections are officially nonpartisan.

Milwaukee

Milwaukee is the 31st largest city, with a population of about 563,000. Mayor Cavalier Johnson (D) won a special election in 2022, following the resignation of Tom Barrett.  He is now seeking a full four-year term. 

Pastor David King also advanced from the February 20 top two primary. Johnson outpolled King by 87% to 10% that day.

Polls close at 9:00 PM Eastern Time.

Anchorage

The nation's 73rd largest city has a population of about 287,000. David Bronson (R) is seeking a second three-year term. 

Bronson has drawn a large number of challengers. If no candidate gets 45% of the vote, the top two finishers will advance to a runoff on May 14. 

Per the Anchorage Daily News, a runoff is likely, with Bronson getting one spot and "a three-way race for second place among former Assembly Chair Suzanne LaFrance, retired head of the Anchorage Economic Development Corp. Bill Popp, and former Democratic state House member Chris Tuck."

This election is conducted primarily by mail ballot. Voting centers and drop boxes will be available until 8:00 PM local time (12:00 AM Eastern).

Ballot Questions

There are also two ballot measures in Wisconsin. A 'yes' vote would amend the state's constitution. Polls close at 9:00 PM Eastern.
