All 40 delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to presidential contenders based on the voting in today's Presidential Caucuses.

  • 40 at-large National Convention delegates (including the 3 party leaders: the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Utah's Republican Party) are bound to presidential contenders according to the statewide vote. [Utah Republican Party Bylaws. 7.0. B.]
    • If a candidate receives a majority of the vote (more than 50%), that candidate is allocated all 40 National Convention delegates.
    • If 3 or more candidates receive 15% or more of the vote, the 40 National Convention delegates are proportionally allocated to those Presidential contenders receiving 15% or more of the vote. See the rounding rules below.
    • If fewer than 3 candidates receive 15% or more of the vote, the 40 National Convention delegates are proportionally allocated between all Presidential contenders. See the rounding rules below.
  • Proportional allocation rounding: Beginning with the candidate who received the most votes, multiply [the percentage of votes received] by [40 National Convention Delegates] and round any remainder up to the next whole number. Repeat for the next highest vote getter until all 40 delegates are allocated.
