Voters cast ballots for a Presidential candidate and District delegates. The name of each District Delegate candidate (along with his or her Presidential Preference and gender) appears on the ballot [Delegate Selection Plan, Part Three, Section B. 7.(b)]. Delegates are selected by gender from the highest vote getters. If a Presidential candidate is entitled to more district delegates than there were candidates on the ballot, the State Committee will fill the positions at a post-Primary caucus held before the state Convention [Delegate Selection Plan, Part Three, Section B. 8(a)].
