New York primary Live updates
With 95 delegates up for grabs on the Republican side, and 247 delegates plus 44 super-delegates on the Democratic side, New York stands to either solidify or completely rearrange the presidential primary process.
How the delegate distribution works
The GOP has a bit more complicated process than the Democrats in New York. Of the Republicans' 95 delegates, three automatically go to the overall winner, while 11 are at-large and 81 are awarded based on results in each congressional district. If the winner earns over 50 percent of the vote, then he will take all of the at-large delegates as well. From there, it is conceivable that New York could end in a winner-take-all scenario, especially with Donald Trump polling far ahead of Ted Cruz and John Kasich. It's also important to note that scoring less than 20 percent of the vote wins nothing.
For Democrats, their delegates will be distributed proportionally across the state as well as in congressional districts.
