The Maine caucus is closed. All voters must be registered Democrat or Republican to participate in the corresponding caucus. Delegate Award Methodology
Pledged delegates (25) 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. Maine is also allocated 5 superdelegates which are not pledged based on the caucus outcome. Republicans
All Maine delegates (23) are awarded in the Republican caucus as follows.
- If one candidate receives over 50% of the vote, that candidate is awarded all 46 delegates.
- If no candidate receives over 50% of the vote, then the delegates will be awarded proportionally to all candidates receiving at least 10% of the vote.
- If no candidate receives over 10% of the vote, then the threshold is reduced to 5%.
