All 40 of Mississippi's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in today's Mississippi Presidential Primary.

  • 12 district delegates are bound to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of the 4 congressional districts: each congressional district is assigned 3 National Convention delegates. [Rule 3]
    • If one candidate receives a majority (more than 50%) of the vote in a Congressional District, that candidate is allocated all 3 delegates.
    • Otherwise, the candidate receiving the most votes receives 2 delegates and the candidate receiving the second most votes receives 1 delegate.
  • 28 at-large delegates (10 base at-large delegates plus 15 bonus delegates plus 3 RNC delegates) are bound to presidential contenders based on the statewide primary vote. [Rule 4]
    • If one candidate receives a majority (more than 50%) of the statewide vote, that candidate is allocated all 28 at-large delegates.
    • Otherwise, each presidential candidate receiving 20% or more of the statewide vote is proportionally allocated delegates based on their percentage of the vote total of all candidates who met the 20% threshold. Round to the nearest whole number. If no candidate receives 20% of the vote, the threshold is 15%. The process does not describe what to do if too many or too few delegates are allocated due to rounding.
