The Vermont primary is open. There is no party registration in Vermont. All voters may choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot. Delegate Award Methodology
Pledged delegates (16) 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. Vermont is also allocated 10 superdelegates which are not pledged based on the primary outcome. Republicans
All Vermont delegates (16) are awarded in the Republican primary. The GOP utilizes a “winner-take-most” system for awarding delegates. All 16 delegates are awarded based on the statewide results.
Statewide delegates are awarded as follows.
- If a candidate earns more than 50% of the vote statewide, then that candidate is awarded all 16 at-large delegates.
- If no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote statewide, then the 16 at-large delegates are awarded proportionally to all candidates receiving at least 20% of the statewide vote.
- If no candidate gets more than 20% of the vote statewide, then the 16 at-large delegates are awarded proportionally to all candidates receiving at least 15% of the statewide vote.
- If no candidate gets more than 15% of the vote statewide, then the 16 at-large delegates are awarded proportionally to all candidates receiving at least 10% of the statewide vote.
