It’s Democratic primary day in South Carolina and polls are already open across the Palmetto State. Will Hillary Clinton defeat Bernie Sanders as many polls project, what time do polls close, and how can you watch the primary results live online?
Here’s how to keep tabs on the results on your computer, mobile device or on TV as polling data starts to stream in on Saturday, February 27. Scroll down to find links to free live stream coverage, mobile apps, and TV stations.
Twitter will also be a great source of information on primary day — get the latest buzz on what’s happening at the polls in South Carolina not only from reporters on the scene, but voters who have plenty to say about Saturday’s Democratic primary. Check out the live #SCPrimary Twitter feed below.
Polls opened at 7 a.m. on Saturday and will close at 7 p.m. — but that doesn’t mean all the votes will be in at that time. Any voter who is in line at 7 p.m. will be allowed to vote, so final results won’t be available immediately, although polls posted on RealClear Politics shows that Clinton is averaging a 26.6 percentage point lead over Sanders, so she may be making her acceptance speech on the early side.
LIVE STREAM RESULTS: CNN will have live stream coverage of the South Carolina Democratic primary throughout the day on Saturday. Watch online on CNNgo.com or by downloading the CNN app for the iPhone, iPad, or Android mobile device.
TV COVERAGE: In addition to CNN, most major TV news networks including NBC, FOX, ABC, and CBS will have live coverage close to poll closing time (7 p.m. ET). In addition to poll results, CNN will provide primary day analysis before and after polls close on Saturday.
Next Tuesday, all eyes will be on the Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses. There are 595 delegates up for grabs for Democrats and 1,0004 for Republicans, with voting taking place in 12 states and one U.S. territory. Get the low-down about Super Tuesday here.
