Washington, Hawaii, and Alaska caucuses 2016: poll closing times and results

Though Republicans had Saturday off, election-wise, Democrats in three states — Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii — headed to the polls. And Bernie Sanders did fantastically, not only winning all three caucuses but winning them in landslides. The delegates haven't all been allotted yet, but it appears likely he'll net around 70 more delegates than Clinton in Saturday's contests. Yet this would still mean he's 230 or so pledged delegates behind Clinton — better off than he was Saturday morning, but worse off than he was on March 10.

As for what's next, Republicans are on a bit of a break — the only state holding a primary or caucus in the next three weeks will be Wisconsin, on Tuesday, April 5. Democrats will also vote in Wisconsin that day, and will hold caucuses in Wyoming later that week, on Saturday, April 9.

Washington Democratic caucuses

Delegates at stake: 101 pledged delegates

Outcome: Sanders won a huge victory, pulling 73 percent of the vote to Clinton's 27 percent. And Washington is a sizable state, so he'll make up some important ground on Clinton in the pledged delegate count here.

Alaska Democratic caucuses

Delegates at stake: 16 pledged delegates

Outcome: Again, Sanders won big — by a margin of 82 percent to 18 percent.

Hawaii Democratic caucuses

Delegates at stake: 25 pledged delegates

Outcome: Sanders won in a 70-30 landslide in Hawaii too.
