Tuesday 26 April 2016: Pennsylvania Primary. Hours 7:00a-8:00p EDT (1100-0000 UTC). Delegate Binding: Combined Selection Statewide: Winner-Take-All, District: Loophole Primary. Voter Eligibility: Closed Primary.
Tuesday 26 April 2016: Pennsylvania Presidential Primary.
The Presidential primary vote from the Pennsylvania Department of State is presented by County rather than by Congressional District. The table below was made by interpolating Counties to Congressional Districts so it is only a rough estimate. (To go from county to CD we interpolate -- say 30% of a county is in CDa, 60% in CDb and 10% in CDc. We take 30% of the county vote and apply it to CDa, 60% of the county vote and apply it to CDb, and 10% of the county vote and apply it to CDc. We did that for each county.)
Saturday 21 May 2016: Summer Meeting. The Pennsylvania Republican State Committee will meet to choose 14 at-large delegates (10 base at-large delegates plus 4 bonus delegates) who are bound to the candidate who receives the most votes in the Pennsylvania Presidential Primary.
In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Pennsylvania's Republican Party, will attend the convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.
On 18 May 2015, state Representative Keith Greiner (Republican) published a memoranda indicating his intentions to introduce legislation to move the Presidential primary from the 4th Tuesday in April to the 3rd Tuesday in March.
HB 1318, introduced by state Representative Keith Greiner (Republican) on 10 June 2015, would move the presidential and partisan primaries from the 4th Tuesday in April to the 3rd Tuesday in March.
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.
