North Carolina is one of the states to watch in today’s primary voting. It’s not a winner-take-all state, so candidates can come away with delegates, whether or not they win. Democrats will award 107 delegates, Republicans 72.

The primary is also operating under a new voter ID law, and being heldĀ on an earlier date (it used to be held in May). Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson talks with Leoneda Inge, a reporter at contributor station North Carolina Public Radio.
