45 of 48 of Virginia's delegates to the Republican National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders in today's Virginia Presidential Primary.

33 district delegates, 3 from each of the 11 congressional districts, are to be allocated to the presidential contenders based on the primary results in each congressional district [Amendment to Allocation and Binding. Section 1].

  • If one candidate receives more than 50% of the vote or only 1 candidate receives 15% or more of the vote in a congressional district, that candidate receives all 3 delegates.
  • Otherwise, if 2 or more candidates receive more than 15% of the vote, the highest vote getter receives 2 delegates and the next highest vote getter receives 1 delegate.
  • Otherwise, the top 3 vote getters each receive 1 delegate.

12 (10 at-large, 2 bonus) delegates are bound to presidential contenders based on the primary results statewide [Amendment to Allocation and Binding. Section 2].

  • If one candidate receives more than 50% of the vote or only 1 candidate receives 15% or more of the vote statewide, that candidate receives all 12 delegates.
  • Otherwise, if 2 or more candidates receive more than 15% of the vote, the delegates are distributed proportionally to those candidates receiving more than 15% of the statewide vote. (Here, the "total qualified vote" is the total number of votes cast to those candidates receiving more than 15% of the statewide vote.)
    • For each candidate, multiply [12 National Convention Delegates] by the number of votes received by that candidate, divide by [total qualified vote], and round to the nearest whole number.
    • If too few delegates are allocated due to rounding, the candidate closest to the rounding threshold receives an additional delegate.
    • If too many delegates are allocated due to rounding, the candidate furthest from the rounding threshold loses a delegate.
  • The rules do not mention what happens should no candidate receive 15% or more of the vote.

The 3 RNC delegates, the Party Chair, the RNC Committeeman, and RNC Committeewoman, are not bound to any candidate [Amendment to Allocation and Binding. Section 3]. However, these delegates are likely be be included in the statewide allocation.
