The Mississippi primary is open. There is no party registration associated with voter registration. Delegate Award Methodology
Pledged delegates (36) 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. Mississippi is also allocated 5 superdelegates which are not pledged based on the primary outcome. Republicans
All Mississippi 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 (including 15 bonus delegates and 3 party leaders) are awarded based on the statewide results. District level delegates are awarded as follows.
- If a candidate earns more than 50% of the vote, then that candidate is awarded all three the district delegates.
- Otherwise, the first place finisher is awarded two delegates and the second place finisher gets one delegate.
- The 28 at-large delegates are given proportionally to all candidates who receive at least 15% of the statewide vote.
- If no one receives 15% of the statewide vote, then the threshold for receiving delegates is reduced to 10%.
