If you are unsure of how Super Tuesday works, each state is a little different. Some states vote like primaries and others are caucuses.

So who can you vote for today?

For the Republican side, the five remaining candidates participating in Super Tuesday are Donald Trump, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Ben Carson.

On the Democratic side, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will face off against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

What is critical today? Texas by far is the biggest delegate prize with 155 Republican delegates and 252 Democratic delegates.

Today is a make or break for many of the candidates campaigns. After Super Tuesday a handful of other states will vote Saturday.

Happy Super Tuesday! Vote wisely!!! It’s only the future of our country we are talking about here.
