All 43 of Washington's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Presidential Primary.
Delegates are bound by the primary results only on the first ballot. If no candidate receives the majority ... on the first ballot, ... delegates will vote as they choose on successive ballots.
3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Washington's Republican Party, will attend the convention as bound delegates by virtue of their position.
Thursday 18 April - Saturday 20 April 2024: The Washington Republican State Convention (consisting of 1,500 delegates, 1,500 alternates, and the automatic delegates) convenes [WSRP rule 36]. National Convention delegates are elected according to the results of the primary.
Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.
