The New York primary is closed. Voters must register as Democrats to vote in the Democratic primary or Republicans to vote in the Republican primary. Delegate Award Methodology
Pledged delegates (247) 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. New York is also allocated 44 superdelegates which are not pledged based on the primary outcome. Republicans
All New York delegates (95) are awarded in the Republican primary. The GOP utilizes a modified winner-take-all system for awarding delegates. Three delegates are awarded in each congressional district (81 total), and 14 at-large delegates (including 1 bonus delegate and 3 RNC 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 or if only one candidate earns more than 20% of the vote, then that candidate is awarded all three the district delegates.
- If no one gets more than 50% of the vote in a district, and more than one candidate receives 20% or more, then the first place finisher is awarded two delegates and the second place finisher gets one delegate.
- If no one receives 20% of the vote in a district, then the Republican Party will elect the district’s three delegates without regard to the outcome of the primary vote.
- If a candidate earns more than 50% of the statewide vote, then that candidate is awarded all 14 at-large delegates.
- If no one gets more than 50% of the vote statewide, then the 14 at-large delegates are awarded proportionally to all candidates who receive at least 20% of the statewide vote.
