2024 Presidential Preferential Primary and 2024 Presidential Preferential Primary Candidates from the Oklahoma State Election Board.

4 September 2023: Castro v Ziriax, Trump, CIV-23-781-JD lawsuit to keep former President Donald Trump off the Oklahoma Republican Presidential Primary ballot.

Rules from Oklahoma Republican Party.

18 December 2023: State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax announced today that he has been notified by the Oklahoma Democratic Party that it will allow Independents to vote in its primaries and runoff primaries during the 2024-2025 election years. Meanwhile, the Oklahoma Republican Party notified the Secretary that it will keep its primaries closed to Independent voters. The Libertarian Party did not formally send a notification; therefore, by default, the Libertarian Party primaries will remain closed as designated by state law.

Tuesday 5 March 2024: Oklahoma Primary. Hours 7:00a-7:00p CST (1300-0100 UTC). Delegate Binding: Winner-Take-Most Primary. Voter Eligibility: Closed Primary.

All 43 of Oklahoma's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in today's Oklahoma Presidential Primary. [Rule 18(h)]

  • The 15 district delegates are allocated to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of the 5 congressional districts: each congressional district is assigned 3 National Convention delegates.
    • If one candidate receives more than 50% of the vote or only one candidate receives 15% or more of the vote, that candidate receives 3 delegates.
    • Otherwise, if exactly 2 candidates receive 15% or more of the vote, the candidate receiving the most votes receives 2 delegates and the candidate receiving the second most votes receives 1 delegate.
    • Otherwise, if 3 or more candidates receive 15% or more of the vote, the top 3 vote-getters each receive 1 delegate. (no information on what happens should no candidate receive at least 15% of the vote.)
  • If one candidate receives more than 50% of the statewide vote, that candidate receives all of the state's 28 (10 at-large, 15 bonus, 3 RNC) at-large delegates. Otherwise, the 28 at-large delegates are proportionally allocated to those candidates receiving 15% or more of the total statewide vote. The allocation is in proportion to the total statewide vote NOT the total vote of those candidates receiving 15% or more of statewide vote. The remaining delegates are unbound. Round fractions to the nearest whole number. (no information on what to do if the rounding results in 1 too many or what happens should no candidate receive at least 15% of the vote.)
