The Arkansas primary is open. All voters may choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot. Delegate Award Methodology
Pledged delegates (32) are awarded proportionally based on statewide and district level vote totals. A 15% threshold is in place for all delegates. This means that a candidate must win at least 15% of the vote in a district or statewide election to be eligible for any delegates. Arkansas is also allocated 5 superdelegates which are not pledged based on the primary outcome. Republicans
All Arkansas delegates (40) are awarded in the Republican primary. The GOP utilizes a modified proportional system for awarding delegates. Three delegates are awarded in each congressional district (12 total), and 28 at-large delegates are awarded based on the statewide results. District level delegates are awarded as follows.
- If a candidate earns more than 50% of the vote in a district, then that candidate is awarded all 3 of the district delegates.
- If no one gets more than 50% of the vote in a district, then the first place finisher is awarded two delegates and the second place finisher gets one delegate.
- Each candidates who receives at least 15% of the statewide vote is awarded a delegate.
- If a candidate earns more than 50% of the vote statewide, then that candidate is awarded the rest of the at-large delegates.
- If no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote statewide, then the 28 at-large delegates are given proportionally to all candidates who receive at least 15% of the statewide vote.
