Delegates are directly elected in the West Virginia Republican Primary. Both the delegate's name and Presidential Preference are marked on the ballot. Here are the unofficial congressional district and at-large results:
Tuesday 9 May 2000: all of West Virginia's 18 delegates to the Republican National Convention will be directly elected in the West Virginia Presidential Primary, in which delegates are directly elected and listed on the ballot as individuals. This is a "Loophole" type primary in which there is also a presidential preference vote atop the ballot: a so-called "beauty contest", the results of which have no effect on the allocation of National Convention delegates.
West Virginia has 55 counties and 3 congressional districts: all 55 counties are wholly within a given congressional district and no county is divided among more than one congressional district.
