Former Vice President Joe Biden has won Ohio's Democratic presidential primary. See live results below.

Ohio's in-person primary, originally scheduled for March 17, was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Lawmakers then extended absentee voting until April 28.

By then, the Democratic race became something of a foregone conclusion. While there are still 10 names on the Ohio ballot, everyone but former Vice President Joe Biden has dropped out. 

Since then, Biden's former rivals - including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, billionaire Mike Bloomberg and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren - have endorsed him for president, as has former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump, seeking a second term, is the only candidate on the Republican side. In 2016, Trump won Ohio over Clinton.

In addition to the presidential contest, WOSU is watching a number of other races as well, including party primaries for Congress and some local races.

While mail-ballots had to be postmarked by Monday, polls officially closed Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. The below tallies will update as soon as votes start to come in from the Ohio Secretary of State's Office.
