How many states are left to vote in the primaries?

At the moment there are about 16 States left to vote. The biggest state still to vote in the primaries is Texas with 228 delegates. Other important states yet to vote are Pennsylvania with 188, Ohio with 161 and North Carolina with 134 delegates. Texas and Ohio will vote on Mar 4, Pennsylvania on April 22 and North Carolina on May 6. In total these remaining big states make-up 771 delegates. The total of delegates of the other 12 smaller states is 480. So we just might have to wait until June 7th when Puerto Rico the last state casts its vote before it is clear which Democractic candidate (Hillary vs. Obama) wins the primaries or it may be left to the super delegates (whoever they are and however that works???).

How do the two main political parties choose its final candidates for president and vice president A By congressional caucus B At a national nominating convention C By direct Primary?

C and B are both correct, I think. National primaries award votes to candidates at the conventions, but not all states have them and there are other delegates that are not bound by primaries. In recent years, one candidate has won so many votes in primaries that the nomination is either locked up or almost locked up, but it is possible that no candidate would have a clear edge when the convention begins. Primaries only bind delegates for the first ballot.

In can independents and registered party members vote in the party primary?

It depends on what state (and what office)? Laws vary state by state usually determined by what the parties decide. On the presidential level, independents can currently vote in 33 states in the (Democratic) Primary (there's a few states, e.g. California, where it's open in one party and closed in the other) and closed in 17. In Idaho, the Republican Party is trying to close down a primary that has been open for many years and independents (led by the Committee for A Unified Independent Party (www.independentvoting.org) and the Amnerican Independent Movement of Idaho intervened on the suit and won the right for the first time for independents who are not a party to be party to a suit of this kind). And there are several states (e.g. Kentucky) where legislation has recently been introduced to open the primaries).
