Friday 1 January - Tuesday 1 March 2016: The North Dakota Republican Party conducts caucuses in Legislative Districts to elect delegates to the State Convention. There is no Presidential preference vote.

 

Friday 1 April - Sunday 3 April 2016: The North Dakota State Republican Convention convenes. Delegate Binding: Delegate Selection Caucus/Convention. Voter Eligibility: Closed Caucus/Convention. The State Committee voted on 13 August 2015 to not have any type of Presidential caucus or straw poll.

  • In a Presidential election year, the Committee ... will present a slate of delegates... to the State Republican Endorsing Convention from persons who applied to the committee from nomination.

Three party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the North Dakota's Republican Party, will attend the convention by virtue of their position.

Source: North Dakota Republicans Choose Delegates to National Convention from WHO TV.
"The ... delegates include 8 Republicans who have said they will vote for Cruz and 1 who is supporting Donald Trump ... many delegates were mum about their plans ..."

Source: Cruz allies prevail in North Dakota delegate race from CNN. "North Dakota Republicans selected 25 national delegates and, of those, 18 were on a list of preferred delegates that Cruz circulated ... as many as 10 of the delegates on the preferred list have indicated some or solid public support for Cruz ..."

Source: Ted Cruz claims 18-delegate win after North Dakota GOP convention.

Source: Majority of North Dakota GOP delegates support Ted Cruz from Inforum. "... at least 17 are supporting Cruz or leaning that way ... 3 of the 17 potential Cruz delegates were less forthcoming, saying they were ... leaning toward the Texas senator." We are soft counting 14 delegates as Cruz supporters.

26 May 2016: Mister 1,237: North Dakota delegate puts Trump over the top. John Trandem and state Representative Ben Koppleman announce for Trump. We are now soft counting 2 additional delegates for Trump. Total for Tump 3.

26 May 2016: Donald Trump's press conference and remarks at The Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck, North Dakota.. The video shows Trump shaking the hands of the 17 delegates and stating "The folks behind me got us right over the top ... from North Dakota ... thank you very much ...." We are now listing 17 delegates for Trump.

North Dakota's delegates ... shall caucus ... to discuss voluntarily apportioning delegate representation on the first ballot ... However, any such apportionment on the first ballot shall be strictly voluntary. The delegates remain free to vote their conscience on all balloting. [PRESIDENTIAL CAUCUS RULES Rule No. 21 - 27 September 2011]
