District of Columbia Council Bill, B23-0212, signed on 23 October 2019, moves the Primary to the 1st Tuesday in June, the date shown in the plan.
A candidate for Delegate or Alternate Delegate must be a registered Republican in the District of Columbia since at least 2 June 2018 (two years prior to the primary).
All of 19 of the District of Columbia's National Convention delegates are pledged to presidential contenders based on voting in today's District of Columbia Presidential Primary. [Republican Presidential Convention and Delegate Selection Plan Section II. 1]
National Convention Delegates run as slates on the Citywide ballot. The candidate who receives the most votes receives all of the District's 19 delegates.
If a Presidential candidate who is allocated delegates withdraws prior to the National Convention, the delegates bound to that Candidate become unbound. [Section V. 7.]. If only one candidate's name is placed in nomination ... all delegates shall be bound to vote for such candidate on the first ballot provided that the candidate received votes in the DC presidential preference poll [Section V. 8.]. The DC Delegation ... shall be bound through the first ballot .... [Section V. 9.]
The 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the CD Republican Party, will by virtue of their position, attend the Republican National Convention bound to the candidate of their choice. [Section V. 6.]
Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.
