17 March 2012 results from a party source: 2012 Presidential Caucus


   

Tuesday 13 March 2012: 17 of 20 of Hawaii's delegates to the Republican National Convention are pledged proportionally to presidential contenders in today's Precinct Caucuses. Voting occurs between 6 and 8 pm local time. [Rules of the Hawaii Republican Party. Section 215. E.]

  • Each Presidential campaign (or uncommitted slate) supplies a list of delegates to the National Convention. 20% of each slate (delegates and alternates) must come from a county with a population below 500,000. The State Chair and National Committee members cannot be part of a slate.
  • Voting is by secret ballot. Ballots are cast for the slate rather than for individual delegates. The names of the National Convention delegates will not appear on the ballot.
  • Voters may join the Republican party and register to vote at the caucus. Only party members are eligible to participate in the caucuses.
  • Blank votes, spoiled ballots, over votes, and write-in votes for a candidate who is not registered with the FEC as a Republican candidate for President are not considered to be valid.
  • Determine the Delegate Allocation Percentage in each Congressional District and Statewide:
    1. Delegate Allocation Percentage = the number of valid votes for each Presidential candidate divided by the total number of valid votes for all candidates. Round any remainder to the next whole number.
    2. Starting with the highest vote getter, multiply the candidate's Delegate Allocation Percentage by the total number of delegates rounding any remainder to the next whole number. Continue with the next highest vote getter until all delegates are pledged to a presidential contender. The number of delegates allocated to each jurisdiction:
      • CD 1: 3 delegates
      • CD 2: 3 delegates
      • Statewide: 11 delegates
  • The Hawaii Leadership Committee of each Presidential campaign appoints Party members to fill the delegate positions. [Rule 215. F.]

In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Hawaii's Republican Party, will attend the convention as unpledged delegates by virtue of their position.


Rules of the Republican Party of Hawaii:

  • Section 214. ELECTION. ... Hawaii Republican caucuses shall be held on the second Tuesday in March of each Presidential Election Year. ...
  • Section 216. CANDIDATE COMMITMENTS. Except by their own commitments, National Delegates ... shall not be required to support any particular candidate for the Republican nomination for President or Vice President. Provided the candidate the delegate ... is supporting has not withdrawn prior to the first ballot at the National Convention, the commitment to that candidate shall be binding, but only through the first ballot.
