All 22 of New Hampshire's delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's New Hampshire Primary.
Prior to the primary, each Presidential candidate submits a list of delegate candidates to the New Hampshire Secretary of State. After the primary, the Secretary of State notifies each Presidential candidate indicating the number of delegates he/she has won. Each candidate has 10 days to designate which delegate candidates will become National Convention delegates [659.93].
Each presidential candidate ... shall file with the secretary of state ... the names and addresses ... of the delegates ... who shall represent the candidate as his or her delegation to the national convention. [RSA 655:50]
If a presidential candidate has received a share of the delegates as a result of the presidential primary but withdraws as a presidential candidate at any time prior to the convention, his pledged delegates shall be released by the candidate and each delegate is free to support any candidate of his political party who may be his choice as a candidate for president. [RSA 659:93 VI]
"...I pledge myself, if selected as delegate or alternate delegate to said convention, whenever I shall vote, to vote for the nomination of ________________________ as candidate for said party for president so long as he shall be a candidate before said convention." [Certificate of Delegate/Alternate Delegate Selected for the National Convention]
In addition, the 3 party leader delegates, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the New Hampshire's Republican Party, will attend the convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.
National Committeeman and Committeewoman [Bylaws of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee, Article III]
