Voters in five states head to the polls Tuesday, and even though the Republican race is all but over, it's not officially over until June. The largest electoral prize up for grabs Tuesday is New York.
* New York has 95 delegates to the Republican National Convention.
* Each of New York's 29 congressional districts has two delegates. The candidate with the highest total in each district wins both delegates. If no candidate achieves over 20 percent, the delegates will be elected by the party directly however it sees fit.
* Thirty-four at-large delegates are awarded proportionally to candidates who receive at least 20 percent of the statewide vote. If one candidate has more than 50 percent of the statewide total, that candidate wins them all.
* The remaining three delegates (national committeeman, national committeewoman and state party chairman) are unpledged. According to The Green Papers, two of them have endorsed Mitt Romney, while one has endorsed Newt Gingrich. They are free to change their minds whenever they wish.
* Only Ron Paul, Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Romney appear on the ballot.
* Only New York voters who are registered Republican can participate. The deadline for changing voter registration passed on March 30.
* Absentee ballots are due no later than May 1. Military and overseas voters have the same deadline.
