WASHINGTON (AP) – Whether Joe Biden will win Tuesday’s eight primaries isn’t in doubt. But will it be enough to formally clinch the Democratic presidential nomination?

The former vice president needs to win 89% of all delegates at stake to do so. Biden is the last candidate standing. But supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders keep urging voters to cast ballots for him so he can amass delegates and have a greater influence on the party policy platform at the Democratic National Convention.

Biden has met the 89% threshold in only two contests since Super Tuesday: Mississippi and Nebraska.

Votes will be cast Tuesday in Indiana, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota and the District of Columbia.
