Disclaimer:
These pages contain a combination of official, unofficial, and estimated data. The information posted here is subject to change.

The delegate selection processes herein, along with any and all dates associated therewith, are unofficial and based on either (1) information obtained from either Major Party, (2) Presidential Primary dates established by currently-effective State statute, or- where the foregoing information could not be obtained- (3) the state's 2016 delegate selection process and associated dates adjusted to the corresponding dates in 2020.

Democrats

  • Democratic pledged delegate counts are determined by the jurisdiction's Presidential vote in 2008, 2012, and 2016; along with the jurisdiction's electoral vote allocation based on 2010 census for the number of electors in 2020.
  • Democratic unpledged delegate counts are determined by the number of DNC Members, Democratic Governors, Democratic U.S. House members, and Democratic U.S. Senators serving at the time of the convention. The count for DNC Members, Distinguished Party Leaders is from the 2016 Convention. The tallies of Governors, Democratic U.S. House members, and Democratic U.S. Senators are the current officeholders.
  • Democratic Bonus Delegates and penalties are not included in these delegate tallies.

Republicans

  • Republican delegate counts are based on the number of Republicans elected to the State Legislatures, Governors chairs, U.S. House seats, and U.S. Senators seats through 31 December 2019. Republican unpledged delegate counts are determined by state (or equivalent) party rules. We have assumed that the policies of 2016 will apply in 2020.
  • The Republican district delegate count is based on the number of U.S. House members each state will elect in 2020.
  • Republican penalties for violating the timing window are not included in these delegate tallies.

Tuesday 3 March 2020 (presumably): All 27 delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's District Conventions. In addition, each District chooses delegates to the Alaska State Republican Convention. [Rules of the Alaska Republican Party, Article V. Section 15]

A Presidential Candidate must receive a 13% of vote of the total statewide vote in order to receive any delegates to the National Convention. The delegates are allocated proportionally among those candidates receiving 13% or more of the vote. Round down from 0.49% and up from 0.50%. If rounding results in too many delegates, subtract the excess delegates from the candidate entitled to delegates who received the fewest votes. If rounding results in a too few delegates, add additional delegates to the candidate who received the most votes. [Section 15: (f)(3)]

If a Qualified Presidential Candidate drops out prior to the Republican State Convention, the percentage of national delegates pledged to that candidate shall be reapportioned among the Qualified Presidential Candidates. [Section 15: (f)(9)].

Thursday 23 April - Saturday 25 April 2020 (presumably): The Alaska State Republican Convention convenes. The State Convention chooses 24 of 27 delegates from Alaska to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the District Conventions.

In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Alaska's Republican Party, are elected at today's state convention and will attend the National Convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.

Delegates to the National Convention shall be elected from the Delegates to the State Convention ... [and] ... shall be pledged to support a Qualified Presidential Candidate ... so long as their preferred Candidate maintains an active campaign. After the second round of balloting ... if the Candidate to which the Delegate is pledged is the candidate receiving the fewest number of votes ..., the Delegate is no longer required to support that candidate. If a ... delegate ... pledged to a ... Presidential Candidate who is no longer a candidate for the Republican Nomination for President as of the date of the National Convention, that delegate ... shall be deemed non-pledged. [Rules of the Alaska Republican Party, Article V. Section 15: (f)(4)]
