Super Tuesday, also known as the presidential primary election, was on March 5, 2024. This day serves as a crucial milestone in the nominations for both the Democratic and Republican parties. 

On Super Tuesday, the largest number of states hold primary elections to allocate a high number of delegates needed to secure the presidential nomination. This day is when more than a third of delegates are up for grabs.

Candidates often invest many resources and energy into Super Tuesday, campaigning extensively in key states and mobilizing supporters to turn out to vote.

The polls in North Texas are now open for 24 hours for voters in the county they are registered in.

Here are some tips for the many TCU students who will be first-time voters this year.

  1. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. As long as you are in line by 7 p.m., you will be permitted to vote.
  2. To find poll locations and voting information, go to votetexas.gov
  3. If you are not currently registered to vote in your state, you will have to wait until later this year to vote in the presidential election.

For this year’s election be sure to watch as the republican delegates count as Nikki Haley races former president Donald Trump in the Republican nomination. The Democratic race will be less competitive as current President Joe Biden is running for re-election.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s chair will be at stake this election year as nine democratic competitors go for his position. 

The outcomes of these contests can reshape the dynamics of the race, forcing underperforming candidates to reassess their viability while bolstering the prospects of those who emerge victorious.
