2024 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions

Disclaimer:
These pages contain a combination of official, unofficial, and estimated data. The information posted here is subject to change and will be updated as official information becomes available.

The delegate selection processes herein, along with any and all dates and delegate counts associated therewith, are unofficial and based on either (1) information obtained from either Major Party, (2) Presidential Primary dates established by currently-effective State statute, or- where the foregoing information could not be obtained- (3) the state's 2020 delegate selection process and associated dates adjusted to the corresponding dates in 2024.

Democrats

  • Democratic pledged delegate counts are determined by the jurisdiction's Presidential vote in 2012, 2016, and 2020; along with the jurisdiction's number of electors in 2024.
  • Democratic unpledged delegate counts are determined by the number of DNC Members, Democratic Governors, Democratic U.S. House members, and Democratic U.S. Senators serving at the time of the convention. The count for DNC Members, Distinguished Party Leaders is from the 2020 Convention. The tallies of Governors, Democratic U.S. House members, and Democratic U.S. Senators are the current officeholders.
  • Democratic Bonus Delegates and penalties are preliminary.

Republicans

  • Republican delegate counts are based on the number of Republicans elected to the State Legislatures, Governors chairs, U.S. House seats, and U.S. Senators seats through 31 December 2023. Republican unpledged delegate counts are determined by state (or equivalent) party rules. We have assumed that the policies of 2020 will apply in 2024.
  • The Republican district delegate count is based on the number of U.S. House members each state will elect in 2024.
  • Republican penalties for violating the timing window are not included in these delegate tallies.

4 June 2021: Nevada Governor Stephen F. "Steve" Sisolak (Democratic) signed AB126 (Assemblymen Frierson, Benitez-Thompson and Brittney Miller). The bill established a Presidential Primary for the 1st Tuesday in February.


   

Tuesday 6 February 2024 (presumably): Nevada Presidential Preference Primary.

 

Only registered Republicans in Nevada are already eligible to participate in the caucuses [Section 1.3]. Neither "write-in" ballots nor a "none of the above" option shall be permitted [Section 2.1 b].

Saturday 24 February 2024 (presumably): Nevada Precinct Caucuses. Hours reportedly begin at 12:40p PST (2040 UTC). The results of the Presidential Preference Poll are announced at 3p PST. Delegate Binding: Proportional Caucus/Convention. Voter Eligibility: Closed Caucus/Convention.

Republican Party Precinct Caucuses meet. Each Precinct Caucus casts votes for Presidential candidates by secret ballot and chooses the precinct's delegates to the County Conventions. Caucuses will take place between 5p and 9p PST. Absentee ballots are permitted [Section 4]. The delegates to the County Conventions are not bound by the Presidential vote.

  • All 25 National Convention delegates are proportionally bound to Presidential contenders based on today's caucus vote.
  • A 4% threshold is required in order for a contender to be allocated delegates [1 ÷ 25 delegates = 4%].
  • Rule 1.0 says "National Delegates ... shall be allocated proportionally based on the final results ... rounded to the nearest whole number" while Subsection 8.1 says "When rounding off numbers in the calculation of the allocation of Delegates, the calculation will be based on the largest remainder method". Standing Rules 1.0 and 8.1 appear to be contradictory.
    Interpretation A:
    For those candidates receiving 4% or more of the vote: The number of delegates = 25 × (candidate's popular vote) ÷ (total statewide vote for those candidates exceeding the threshold) rounded to the nearest whole number. If a delegate remains, round up the candidate with the largest remainder (?). Not sure what to do if rounding allocates too many delegates.
    Interpretation B (largest remainder method):
    For those candidates receiving 4% or more of the vote: The number of delegates = 25 × (candidate's popular vote) ÷ (total statewide vote for those candidates exceeding the threshold). Award each candidate the whole number of delegates. Beginning with the candidate with the largest remainder, round up to the next whole number. Repeat for the next highest remainder until all delegates are allocated.

Saturday 9 March - Saturday 6 April 2024 (presumably): Republican Party County Conventions convene in each county. Each County Convention chooses delegates to the Nevada State Republican Convention.

 

Friday 10 May - Sunday 12 May 2024 (presumably): The Nevada State Republican Convention convenes. The State Convention meets to choose delegates to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the Precinct Caucuses. National Convention District Delegates are elected by the Convention Delegates from each such congressional district [Standing Rules 3.2]. National Convention At-Large Delegates are elected by the Convention delegates as a whole [Standing Rules 3.3]. Note: The bindings are recalculated to exclude candidates who suspended their campaigns.

The 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Nevada's Republican Party, will attend the convention by virtue of their position bound to their preferred presidential candidate [Standing Rules 4.2]. If one candidate wins all of the National Delegates, the chairman will attend the National Convention unbound [Standing Rules 5.2].
