The Popular Vote above is based on official returns from the 6 June Primary. This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.

Here's how we compute the delegate count:

  • Bush is the only candidate to receive 20% of the vote. He receives 22 delegates.

Tuesday 6 June 2000: all 22 of South Dakota's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's South Dakota Presidential Primary.

  • "22 delegates to the National Convention are to be allocated to presidential contenders based on the primary vote statewide. A 20 percent threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates at the statewide level."
