SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts voters will head to the polls Tuesday on what’s called Super Tuesday– when more than a dozen states hold primaries or caucuses.

The Democratic candidates are battling for 865 delegates, while the Republican candidates have 661 delegates up for grabs.

Here in Massachusetts, there are 116 Democratic delegates at stake Tuesday and 42 Republican delegates. It is possible, but not very likely, that we will see each party’s nominees come out of Super Tuesday.

The Democratic race remains close between the party’s only two running candidates, Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The Republican race also remains very competitive with six GOP candidates heading into Super Tuesday.

Candidates of both parties have been working to gain votes and support from Massachusetts residents in the past few days leading up to Tuesday. Clinton is scheduled to host a rally in Springfield Monday morning to make her final appeal to voters. Over the weekend John Kasich also traveled to Springfield to woo voters and Trump’s campaign held a rally on the steps of Springfield City Hall.
