Turnout in Washington state’s primary election may take a hit from the coronavirus outbreak. Voters are also headed to the polls in Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, and Missouri, and North Dakota will caucus on Tuesday.

What’s at stake in this contest? Following a show of strength on Super Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden leads rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination. Tuesday’s 352 delegates could cement Biden’s lead or help Sanders close the gap. Michigan offers the biggest haul with 125 delegates. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is the only other Democratic candidate still running.

Dig deeper: Read my report in The Stew about how Biden and Sanders are working to build voter enthusiasm.

    It's kind of nice to know that if you live in a state that doesn't matter, that your vote counts. (Sarcasm) Especially if you were planning on voting for someone who is no longer in the race. It seems like if you are going to run for president, you count the cost and cross the finish line, even if you're last place.
