All 40 of Massachusetts' delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the statewide results of today's Presidential Primary.

  • If a presidential candidate receives a majority (50% or more) of the statewide vote, that candidate receives all 40 delegates.
  • Otherwise, apportion the 40 delegates to those candidates receiving more than 10% of the statewide vote: Each candidates receives (votes for the candidate) ÷ (total votes for candidates receiving more than 10% of the vote). Rounding: Beginning with the candidate receiving the most votes, round up any fractional delegates to the next whole number and proceed on to the next highest vote getter. Continue this until all delegates have been allocated. [Section 2.1(b)(c)] This may not be correct.

In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Massachusetts's Republican Party, will attend the convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.
