North Dakota Primaries for Statewide offices and Congress


3 February 2004 update. The North Dakota Republican party reports "Tonight, President George W. Bush won all 26 of North Dakota’s Delegates to the Republican National Convention in tonight’s Republican Presidential Preference Caucus".



Tuesday 3 February 2004: Republican Party Caucuses meet. Each Caucus chooses that caucus' delegates to the State Convention.

  • There is no formal system applied in the Precinct Caucuses to relate the presidential preference of the Caucus participants to the choice of the precinct's delegates to the State Convention. The participants at each Precinct Caucus alone determine if presidential preference is to be a factor in such choice and, if so, how it is to be applied.

Thursday 1 April - Sunday 4 April 2004: The North Dakota State Republican Convention convenes. The State Convention chooses 23 of 26 delegates from North Dakota to the Republican National Convention.

  • 23 delegates will be chosen by the State Convention as a whole. Delegates are proportionally allocated to the presidential contenders based on the results of the caucus.

In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the North Dakota's Republican Party, will attend the convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.
