Former Vice President Joe Biden is increasing his count of delegates by winning every possible state primary. Alaska state primary is the new addition in his kitty by winning 11 delegates. With this win, Biden presently has 1228 delegates, easily the most by any Democratic nominee. Bernie Sanders also took part in the Alaska primary, however, by the time results came in, Bernie dropped out of the presidential race. With Bernie’s withdrawal, Joe Biden is the presumptive nominee for the rest of the primaries. Joe Biden now has 1228 delegates count to that of Sanders’ 918. Alaska primary was held exclusively through the mail-in system due to the spread of coronavirus in the country.
Alaska Democratic primary was initially on April 4th, which was later moved to April 10th by canceling all in-person voting and opting solely on vote-by-mail. Biden got 55.3% of votes to that of 44.7% votes by Bernie Sanders. The Democratic party sent approximately 71,000 ballots to registered Democratic voters and allowed them to download also. Participants can select up to five nominees for the Democratic nomination using the ranked-choice voting. A total of 19,000 ballots were sent back to the state’s party office, and rest were used. Out of the total 2317 declared delegates, 1991 delegates are needed to win the nomination. With 1228 delegates already under his hat, former Vice President Joe Biden is just 763 delegates away to win the nomination officially.
