Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the Democratic race earlier in the week.
The state is one of the few that switched from a caucus after 2016 and distributed ranked-choice ballots to all registered Democrats. Former Vice President Joe Biden is now the sole Democrat in the race, but many of the ballots had already been cast prior to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' exit, as a result, Sanders is likely to nab some of the state's 15 delegates.
