BlogDailyHerald will be live blogging Super Tuesday! Just in case you’re a little rusty on sixth grade U.S. geography and are struggling to figure out which states are where on the maps available elsewhere, here are states — shapes and names — that will be holding their presidential primaries. The Democratic caucus in American Samoa will also be participating in the night’s festivities. Sorry for leaving you off American Samoa, we know it’s the only time you get any action in U.S. politics.
