The Popular Vote above is based on official returns from the 2 May Primary.

Here's how we compute the delegate count:

  • The candidate with the greatest district wide popular vote receives 15 delegates. Bush has received the greatest number of votes.

Tuesday 2 May 2000: All 15 of the District of Columbia's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to a presidential contender in today's District of Columbia Presidential Primary.

  • "The 15 National Convention delegates are to be allocated to the presidential contender receiving the greatest number of votes in the primary citywide, notwithstanding that candidate's percentage of the total primary vote citywide. This winning candidate will be said to have received the 'final net primary vote'".
