The latest 2016 Connecticut Republican Primary polls for the Tuesday April 26 winner-take-most contest, where 28 delegates are up for grabs. 25 of Connecticut’s 28 delegates to the Republican National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders in today’s Connecticut Presidential Primary. [Article I, Section 17]
— 15 district delegates are to be allocated to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of the 5 congressional districts: each congressional district is assigned 3 National Convention delegates and the presidential contender receiving the greatest number of votes in that district will receive all 3 of that district’s National Convention delegates. [Article I, Section 17. (b)]
— 13 at-large delegates (10 base at-large delegates plus 0 bonus delegates plus 3 RNC delegates) are to be allocated to presidential contenders based on the statewide primary vote. [Article I, Section 17.(a)]
1) If one candidate receives a majority of the statewide vote (more than 50%), that candidate is allocated all 13 of the at-large delegates.
2) If no candidate receives a majority of the statewide vote, each presidential candidate receiving 20% or more of the statewide vote shall be allocated delegates accordingly based on their percentage of the vote total of those candidates who met the 20% threshold. Round fractional proportions of a delegate to the nearest whole number. If rounding results in too few delegates being allocated, the candidate receiving the most votes receives an additional delegate. [Article I, Section 17.(g)] (no mention of what to do if too many delegates are allocated due to rounding)
The 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Connecticut’s Republican Party, will by virtue of their position, attend the convention as pledged delegates.
The delegates … shall be committed … unless released by the candidate, shall vote for the candidate on the first ballot, and shall not change their vote during the course of that ballot. [Article I, Section 17 (a)] [ssbp]
