From CNN's Ethan Cohen

Voting closes at 7 p.m. (10 p.m. ET) in Nevada and statewide. Here are the key things to know About Tuesday's primaries:

Democratic side, President Joe Biden is on the polls with several candidates, including Marion Williamson, and the “none of these candidates” option. Rep. Dean Phillips entered the presidential race after the state's filing deadline, so he won't be on the ballot. Nevada Democrats will allocate their delegates based on Tuesday's primary results and 36 delegates are at stake.

On the Republican side, state-run presidential elections are held without affecting the state's allocation of delegates to the Republican National Convention. The representatives will be awarded based on the results of the party-run meetings held on Thursday. Twenty-six delegates are at stake in the caucuses.

Donald Trump is the only major GOP candidate. His GOP challenger, Nikki Haley, is the only major candidate on Tuesday's primary ballot and will have a “none of these candidates” option. Nevada GOP rules bar candidates from running in both races, but eligible voters can vote in both.

Trump did not face serious opposition to win the state's 26 delegates in the caucuses.
