President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, having already secured enough delegates to win their respective presidential nominations, are expected to add to their counts Tuesday with primary wins in a few states.

Five states were to hold contests in both parties, though Biden won Florida’s delegates when Democrats canceled their primary.

Trump, with no challengers still competing, is expected to prevail there in his home state. He and Biden will add to the delegate totals via contests in Ohio, Illinois, Kansas and Arizona.

After victories last week in the states of Georgia, Mississippi, Washington and Hawaii, Trump raised his delegate count to 1,247, surpassing the 1,215 delegates needed to become the presumptive nominee. The nomination does not become official until the Republican National Convention in July in Milwaukee.

A total of 350 GOP delegates will be awarded after Tuesday’s primaries.

Biden reached 2,107 delegates after last week’s Democratic primaries, surpassing the 1,968 needed to secure the nomination. As with the Republican race, the Democratic nomination does not become official until the Democratic National Convention in August.

A total of 379 delegates will be awarded after Tuesday’s Democratic primaries, not including Florida’s 224, which already have been tallied for the president.
