All 40 of Massachusetts' delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the statewide results of today's Presidential Primary.
Rounding: Beginning with the candidate receiving the most votes, round up any fractional delegates to the next whole number and proceed on to the next highest vote getter. Continue this until all delegates have been allocated. [Section 2.1(b)(c)]
In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Massachusetts's Republican Party, will attend the convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.
The delegates are selected by the State Chair, State Committee, and Presidential campaign committee(s) according to the results of the primary. [Section 3.3(a)(b)(c)]
If a Presidential candidate who was entitled to delegates dies, withdraws, or changes party registration, delegates bound to that candidate will go to the National Convention unbound. [Section 2.3(b)]
Delegates are bound for the 1st roll call vote. [Section 2.3(a)]
