At the end of October, Donald Trump spoke in Gettysburg, Pa., and released a plan for his first 100 days in office.

The day that everyone has been talking about is finally here. While millions of Americans have already cast their ballots in early-voting states, the majority of votes will be cast today.

NPR will have live results as polls close at 7 p.m. ET right here on NPR.org and on your local NPR station.

Donald Trump is expected to announce his running mate any day now, and speculation is swirling about whom he might pick.

A vice presidential choice is a critical one for the Republican presumptive nominee. Not only has he never held elective office, but he still hasn't united his party around his controversial candidacy. More social media missteps this week and comments praising former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein unsettled GOP leaders even more.

The next big day in the presidential nominating contest is Tuesday when voters in Arizona, Utah and Idaho head to the polls.

But the votes are already in for another overlooked primary — Democrats Abroad. Between March 1 and March 8, Democrats living across the globe cast their votes for who they want to see as their party's nominee. The votes have now been tallied, and Bernie Sanders won by a wide margin, according to results released Monday.

The four remaining Republican presidential candidates met in Miami for their last debate before the March 15 primary contests.

The debate, sponsored by CNN, occurred just days after Donald Trump won the Michigan and Mississippi primaries and the Hawaii caucuses. The only other candidate with a March 8 victory was Sen. Ted Cruz, who won the Idaho primary. Trump continues to lead in the delegate count by almost 100 delegates — 458 to Cruz's 359 delegates.

Which candidate had the longest talking time?

As always, NPR had its stopwatch at the ready.

Four Republican presidential candidates took the stage tonight in the first debate following the huge Super Tuesday contests, where Donald Trump dominated. Although Ben Carson remains in the race, he chose not to join his fellow candidates for tonight's debate.

The debate, hosted by Fox News, was moderated in part by Megyn Kelly. Kelly and Trump have previously clashed, which led to him skipping an earlier debate.
