Alaskan Democrats will vote Saturday for their choice for the 2016 presidential ticket in the Alaska Democratic Caucus. The caucus will take place in several locations across the state — with a helpful guide available online to show would-be voters where they can support their nominee. 

According to the Alaska Democratic Party's website, voters will walk toward whichever corner of the room is designated for their candidate. If the party member does not achieve 15% support, the members will realign. However, since the Democratic race has been whittled down to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, it shouldn't present an issue.
