The Texas primary is open. All voters may choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot. Delegate Award Methodology
Pledged delegates (222) 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. Texas is also allocated 30 superdelegates which are not pledged based on the primary outcome. Republicans
All Texas delegates (155) are awarded in the Republican primary. The GOP utilizes a “winner-take-most” system for awarding delegates. Three delegates are awarded in each congressional district (108 total), and 47 at-large delegates (including 34 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 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 and at least one candidate receives 20%, then the first place finisher is awarded two delegates and the second place finisher gets one delegate.
- If no candidate receives 20% of the vote, then the top three finishers are awarded one delegate each.
- If a candidate earns more than 50% of the vote statewide, then that candidate is awarded all 47 at-large delegates.
- If no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote statewide and two or more candidates receives 20% or more, then the 47 at-large delegates are awarded proportionally to all candidates receiving at least 20% of the statewide vote.
- If no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote statewide and only one candidate receives at least 20%, then the 47 at-large delegates are awarded proportionally to the first and second place finishers.
- If no candidate gets more than 20% of the vote statewide, then the 47 at-large delegates are awarded proportionally to all candidates.
