Former Vice President Joe Biden is the projected winner of the Minnesota Democratic primary on Tuesday, according to an analysis of exit polls by ABC News. The state made the decision to switch back from a caucus system to a primary voting system. The reversal marks the first presidential primary election since 1992.

Up for grabs are 75 delegates for the Democrats, and 39 delegates for the Republicans.

Polls opened at 8 a.m. ET and closed at 9 p.m. ET.

State Significance

Minnesota was among the first states to begin early voting in the country, on Jan. 17, prior to any of the first four nominating contests in the primary.

In the 2016 primary, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by nearly a doubled margin, 61.7% to 38.3%.

The Republican primary only features one name on the ballot -- President Donald Trump -- after the Minnesota Republican Party announced in October that its primary ballot would exclude the president's primary challengers.
