  • The 6 district delegates are allocated to presidential contenders based on the the primary vote in each of the 2 congressional districts: each congressional district is assigned 3 National Convention delegates.
    • Allocate the delegates proportionally to those candidates who received at least 10% of the vote.
    • However, if one candidate receives more than 67% of the vote, that candidate receives at least 2 delegates.
    • However, if 3 or more candidates receive 10% or more of the vote, the top 3 vote-getters each receive 1 delegate. (no information on rounding or what happens should no candidate receive at least 10% of the vote.)
  • The 13 (10 at-large, 0 bonus, 3 RNC) delegates are proportionally allocated to those candidates receiving 10% or more of the total statewide vote. (no information on rounding or what happens should no candidate receive at least 10% of the vote.)

    The name of each delegate along with their Presidential preference is listed on the primary ballot. The highest vote-getters become National Convention Delegates and alternates (up to the number won by the Presidential candidate) [Article III Rule 3.04 and 3.05].

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

    All Delegates ... elected under a Presidential candidate shall be required to vote for such Presidential candidate at the National Convention only on the first round of balloting. Delegates ... are not bound on the first ballot if their Presidential candidate has withdrawn as shown through a public statement, suspension of his or her campaign, death, incapacity, or some other action. [Article IV Rule 4.02]

     

    HB 6309 / S 1010 moves the Presidential Primary from the last Tuesday in April, 23 April 2024, to 2 April 2024 for 2024 only. On 14 June 2023, the bill was transmitted to the Governor and signed on 19 June.
