cast ballots for presidential nominees. in pennsylvania, senate, congress, state attorney general and the state legislature as well. why do today's primaries in pennsylvania and delaware matter? by the time the presidential races make it 0 our region every four years we usually have a good idea of who the nominees are going to be. not this year. sara winski who developed the headed to the white house exhibit here at the national constitution center told us pennsylvania and delaware are key in this election cycle because there's no clear winner from either party. >> it's very unusual to get to the point where you have both parties with all these candidates still in the race and still coming to pennsylvania and our region to campaign. >> in pennsylvania, there are 210 delegates up for grabs for democrats, 71 delegates for republicans. in our next half hour, we'll explain exactly how those delegates are awarded. nbc 10's matt delucia is live at a polling location in bristol, bucks county. you found out one of the most

the more heats the election, especially in a presidential year, the more calls we get to the hot line. we love receiving those calls, because our sole purpose is to have more people engage in the democratic process. >> and that hot line number is 866-our-vote. 866-our-vote. you can call it all day before you vote or if you have problems at the poll, it's nonpartisan. the folks are there to help you out. here is how to find your polling location. we have a website. i'm about to tweet a link for you. we also have it on nbc10.com. go to the state voting website. pennsylvania you put in your county, city, street address and you can find out your polling location that way. in delaware, you have the same ability to do that or you can just put in your name and find out your polling location that way. there's a way to find that out before you head to the polls and go to the wrong place.

candidates talk about delegates and just how many are needed to win the nomination. ahead in our next half hour, we take a closer look at the delegate count and explain how delegates are selected, both in pennsylvania and in delaware. it's different. vai? >> looking forward to getting more information on the delegate count. thank you, tracy. the students, staff and parents at one montgomery county elementary school are helping to raise awareness about autism. students at colonial elementary school in plymouth meeting, montgomery county, spent weeks building join the autism ribbons. today the kids will hold up the ribbon outsideç the school. april is autism awareness month and colonial students have been learning about the condition. in the school district, children with autism work and learn alongsi alongside their peers. >> everyone has to understand they learn differently, they may
