21 September 2019: KTTU reports that the Alaska Republican Party cancels 2020 Presidential Preference Poll. "The Alaska Republican Party State Central Committee elected to pass and interim rule allowing it to determine that conducting a Presidential Preference Poll would serve no useful purpose when we have an incumbent President, such as President Trump, running for the Republican nomination for President. As that is the case in 2020, no Presidential Preference Poll will be conducted for the 2020 presidential cycle."

Participation is limited to registered Republicans only. A voter may register or re-registered as a Republican on the day of the convention.

When an incumbent Republican President is seeking the Republican nomination for President, a PPP need not be conducted. The SCC, by majority vote may determine that conducting a PPP would serve no useful purpose, and instead of establishing a date, decide that no PPP will be conducted.... [Alaska Republican Party Rules Appendix B. Section 1(b)] ... The incumbent Republican President will be the only "Qualified Presidential Candidate" in this case. [Appendix B. Section 2(f)(6)].
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 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)]
