The Hawaii Republican Precinct Meetings were held February 7-13. About 800 delegates will attend the state convention. Delegates attending the state convention are not bound to any candidate. The Hawaii delegates attending the Republican National Convention will not be bound to any candidate.
Articles in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin indicate that Hawaii State GOP chairman, Linda Lingle, wishes to remain neutral on Presidential preference.
Monday 7 February through Sunday 13 February 2000: Republican Party Precinct Caucuses are held. Each Precinct Caucus chooses the precinct's delegates to the Hawaii State Republican Convention.
(NOTE: there are so-called "regional caucuses" which are held in April going into early May and which nominate candidates to be delegates to the Republican National Convention who are to be considered at the later State Convention; however, these "regional caucuses" are not considered to have a direct effect on the actual allocation of National Convention delegates to the presidential contenders, as the earlier Precinct Caucuses, which have already chosen the delegates to the State Convention, have no direct and binding effect upon the makeup of these "regional caucuses")
Friday 5 May through Sunday 7 May 2000: The Hawaii State Republican Convention convenes. Congressional District Caucuses made up of the State Convention delegates from each of Hawaii's 2 congressional districts choose the 6 district National Convention delegates (3 per congressional district). The State Convention as a whole chooses the remaining 8 (6 base at-large plus 2 bonus) of Hawaii's delegates to the Republican National Convention.
