The State Convention chooses National Convention delegates bound according to the precinct caucus preference vote. Those chosen as National Convention delegates must have participated in the precinct caucus.
The Nominating Convention selects a National Committeeman, a National Committeewoman, and the National Convention Delegates (3 from each of the state's 4 Congressional Districts plus 25 at-large). [Utah Republican Party Bylaws 7.5.A.]
The national delegation shall be bound on the first ballot ... the delegation shall not be allocated nor bound on any subsequent ballots. ... If a candidate who was allocated delegates is not a candidate at the national convention ... then all the delegates shall be re-allocated and bound to the remaining candidates. [Utah Republican Party Bylaws 7.0.B]
On Saturday 19 September, the Utah Republican State Central Committee voted to change their delegate allocation plan to a winner-take-most.
