you ready for it? we'll be seeing a lot of campaigning in our area over the next six days ahead of tuesday's primary. >> lauren mayk walks us through why presidential is so important to the presidential hopefuls. >> reporter: it is a very busy week, but the voting that happens on tuesday, that's really just the first step here because what these candidates are really after are the delegates that each state hands out. let's take a look at how pennsylvania and delaware do that. we'll start with pennsylvania and we'll start with the democrats. first of all, take a look at that number. 189 delegates. that's a big number, one of the biggest states out there for the democrats. and these delegates are handed out proportionately. both bernie sanders and hillary clinton could both end up with delegates here. take a look at how the republicans do it. theirs is very different, very unique. 17 delegates is what you get if you win the state of pennsylvania. but take a look at this number.
4:46 pm
there are another 54 delegates out there who can vote for anyone they want at the convention. they're completely unbound. and these unbound delegates, you're actually going to vote for them on your ballot on tuesday, but you will not know -- it will not say who those candidates support. some of them have decided at this point, some of them have not. so that is a very unique part of the process here. let's take a look at how they do things in delaware. it is a smaller state, of course, but at this point every delegate counts. this is winner take all. then for the democrats, we've got 21 delegates. again, they are awarded proportionately after tuesday's election. i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. coverage get the nbc 10 app.
