Voters in Washington, Alaska and Hawaii will caucus on Saturday, and those looking for live results will have plenty of options for following along with the up-to-date vote totals.
The races are seen as key for the hopes of Bernie Sanders, who needs to string together wins in order to make up ground on Hillary Clinton. The three states voting on Saturday are seen as friendly to Sanders, and chance for his campaign to pick up momentum for some of the larger states that will follow in April and into May.
Washington will hold its caucus at 1 p.m. ET, while Alaska will report at 2 p.m. ET, and Hawaii at 7 p.m. ET.

The biggest race on Saturday will be in Washington, which awards 101 delegates. The Pacific Northwest is a friendly area for Bernie Sanders, who appeared to capacity crowds in Portland and Seattle on Friday.
Seattle is particularly friendly to Sanders, passing a $15 minimum wage that echoes one of his major campaign platforms.
In his appearance there this week, Bernie Sanders made the case that he would be the strongest candidate for Democrats in November. A series of polls have shown Sanders with a large lead over presumed Republican candidate Donald Trump.
“Don’t let anybody tell you Hillary Clinton is the strongest candidate to take on the Republicans,” he told the crowd (via Fox News). “It is just not true.”
Still, Sanders enters Saturday optimistically after winning more delegates in three contests earlier this week. He gained a net of nearly 20 delegates with wins in the Idaho and Utah caucuses, despite losing the marquee Arizona primary to Clinton.
The Sanders campaign has been honest about the challenge ahead, noting that Hillary Clinton has a large lead, but said the remainder of the primary schedule is friendly to Sanders. Those who follow live results of the Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii caucuses could see an important step in that comeback attempt.
“The senator has made clear that we’re taking this all the way to the convention in July,” said Sanders’ Washington state director Dulce Saenz. “We have an uphill battle, absolutely. There’s no denying the math, but the second half of the primary calendar is much more favorable to Bernie.”
As CNN explained, results from the March 26 caucuses could likely show three wins for Bernie Sanders. Though this won’t change the race much, it could help change the narrative.
“All three will hold caucuses to choose delegates — a method that has favored Sanders in the past — instead of primaries. Alaska and Washington are also largely white and rural, demographics that typically have given Sanders a boost.
“If Sanders does as expected, the headlines declaring him a winner thrice over will surely provide a gust of wind for Sanders’ campaign for fundraising purposes, even if it doesn’t change the calculus of the race.”
