Saturday 5 March 2016: All 40 of Kansas' delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Precinct Caucuses. [Section II. 1.] Each voter casts 1 ballot for the candidate of his or her choice. [Section IV. 2. B.]

  • Each of the state's 4 Congressional Districts is assigned 3 National Convention delegates. These delegates are proportionally allocated to presidential contenders based on the Caucus vote in each Congressional District. The allocation formula for the Congressional District delegates is the same as the formula for allocating statewide delegates. [Section V. 1., VI. 1.].
  • 25 statewide delegates (10 base at-large delegates and 15 bonus delegates) to the Republican National Convention are proportionally allocated to presidential contenders based on the statewide vote. A 10% threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates. If only one candidate or no candidate receives the 10%, there is no threshold. [Section VI. 2.]
    • [the percentage of votes received] = [votes cast for each candidate] ÷ [total votes cast for all candidates meeting the threshold].
    • Beginning with the candidate who received the most votes, multiply [the percentage of votes received] by [the number National Convention Delegates] and round any remainder up to the next whole number. Repeat for the next highest vote getter until all delegates are allocated. [Section VI. 2. A.]
  • The 3 party leader delegates (the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the Chair of the Kansas Republican Party) are bound to the candidate who received the most votes statewide. [Section VI. 3.]

National Convention Delegates are bound unless released by the candidate. [Section VI. 1., 2.D., and 3.]
