Biden topped the other three candidates on the ballot, include a pair of New England politicians.

Biden came in first place with 67.13 percent of the vote.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders came in second with 19.63 percent. After Sanders, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren came in third, taking 9.48 percent of the vote.

U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii earned 1.72 percent of the vote.

The remaining 2.05 percent of voters went for write-ins.

Sanders, Warren, and Gabbard have been out of the race for weeks.
