The primary season is about to wrap up as New Jersey voters get set to head to the polls to pick their party’s candidates for president and in 12 U.S. House races.

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has already sewed up the number of delegates needed to clinch the nomination, while Democratic front-runner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could have the number of delegates needed to secure the nomination after results in New Jersey are announced Tuesday.

A count by The Associated Press shows she is just 23 delegates shy of the 2,383 needed to win. There are 126 pledged delegates at stake in New Jersey.

The congressional contests have drawn less attention, mostly because it looks unlikely any incumbents will lose.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
