On Tuesday, March 22, voters from Arizona, Utah and Idaho cast their votes. For all the voters that try to keep up with politics but just can not, here is a breakdown of what was at stake at last Tuesday’s primary.

What time did it start?

The polls opened in Arizona at 8 a.m., in Utah the Democratic caucuses began at 8 p.m. and the Republican at 9p.m. and in Idaho the Democratic began at 7 p.m.

What went down?

With the competition heating up, many candidates are having issues stumping Trump. Donald Trump has come out on top at almost all the primaries.  On Tuesday’s primary, Trump was victorious in Arizona. This continues to set the stage for how Trump’s next primaries will play out, especially in the state of California. Ted Cruz, however, is not far behind, with his expected win in Utah. Unfortunately, all the Kasich fans out there were disappointed, with zero Kasich  wins this round.

Final results of the March 22 primary.

Heading to the Democratic side,  Hillary Clinton cleaned up in Arizona with her win, and Bernie Sanders took Utah with a large margin. Although both came out on top, Clinton is still far  ahead of Sanders on the delegate count.

At the end of the night, the updated delegate total was 1,237 delegate,s and Trump went home with 739, Cruz with 465 and Kasich with 143, according to BBC News.

Democratic results from the March 22 primary.

With the 2,383 delegates needed, Clinton certainly is the clear winner with her grand total of 1,681 delegates. Sanders, however, fell short with only 937.

What is next?

After their three-day break, the Democratic candidates are back at it again in Alaska, Hawaii and Washington on Saturday, March 26 where Sanders is expected to exceed. And as for the Republicans, voters will not see them again till Tuesday, April 5 in Wisconsin.
