Tuesday 5 March 2024: Alaska Presidential Preference Poll (Party run primary). Hours reportedly 3:00p-8:00p AKST (0000-0500 UTC). Delegate Binding: Proportional Caucus/Convention. Voter Eligibility: Closed Caucus/Convention.
All 29 delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's District Conventions. In addition, each District chooses delegates to the Alaska State Republican Convention. [Rules of the Alaska Republican Party, Appendix B.]
A Presidential Candidate must receive a 13% of vote of the total statewide vote in order to receive any delegates to the National Convention. The delegates are allocated proportionally among those candidates receiving 13% or more of the vote. Round down from 0.49% and up from 0.50%. If rounding results in too many delegates, subtract the excess delegates from the candidate entitled to delegates who received the fewest votes. If rounding results in a too few delegates, add additional delegates to the candidate who received the most votes. [Appendix B: Section 2 (f)(3)]
If a Qualified Presidential Candidate drops out prior to the Republican State Convention, the percentage of national delegates pledged to that candidate shall be reapportioned among the Qualified Presidential Candidates. [Section 15: (f)(9)].
The national convention delegates are chosen at the state convention.
Thursday 18 April - Saturday 20 April 2024: The Alaska State Republican Convention convenes. The State Convention chooses 26 of 29 delegates from Alaska to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the District Conventions.
In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Alaska's Republican Party, are elected at today's state convention and will attend the National Convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.
Delegates to the National Convention shall be elected from the Delegates to the State Convention ... [and] ... shall be pledged to support a Qualified Presidential Candidate ... so long as their preferred Candidate maintains an active campaign. After the second round of balloting ... if the Candidate to which the Delegate is pledged is the candidate receiving the fewest number of votes ..., the Delegate is no longer required to support that candidate. If a ... delegate ... pledged to a ... Presidential Candidate who is no longer a candidate for the Republican Nomination for President as of the date of the National Convention, that delegate ... shall be deemed non-pledged. [Rules of the Alaska Republican Party, Appendix B. Section 2: (f)(4)]
