All 39 of Minnesota's delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Minnesota Presidential.

Rounding of the CD and statewide delegates:
National convention delegates are bound on the first ballot at the national convention. On all subsequent ballots, the delegates are unbound. If a candidate withdraws, the delegates for that candidate become unbound. If a candidate withdraws and then returns to the race, the delegates are once again bound.
Saturday 9 March - Saturday 30 March 2024 (presumably): Republican Party BPOU [="Basic Political Organization Unit"] Conventions convene in each BPOU. Each BPOU [either a County, State Senate District or State House District] Convention chooses delegates to both the Congressional District Conventions and the State Convention.
Sunday 31 March - Saturday 4 May 2024 (presumably): Republican Party District Conventions convene in each congressional district elect delegates to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the Presidential Primary.
Friday 17 May - Saturday 18 May 2024 (presumably): The Minnesota State Republican Convention officially convenes in Rochester. The State Convention chooses the 12 at-large delegates (10 base at-large delegates plus 2 bonus delegates) to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the Presidential Primary.
In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Republican Party of Minnesota, will attend the convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.
