The Tennessee primary is open. All voters may choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot. Delegate Award Methodology
Pledged delegates (67) 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. Tennessee is also allocated 9 superdelegates which are not pledged based on the primary outcome. Republicans
All Tennessee delegates (58) 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 (27 total), and 31 at-large delegates (including 18 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 2/3 of the vote or if only one candidate earns more than 20% of the vote, then that candidate is awarded all three district delegates.
- If no one gets more than 2/3 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.
- Otherwise, the top three finishers at the district level are each awarded one delegate from that district.
- If a candidate earns more than 2/3 of the vote or if only one candidate earns more than 20% of the vote, then that candidate is awarded all 31 at-large delegates.
- If no one gets more than 2/3 of the vote statewide, and more than one candidate receives 20% or more, then the 31 at-large delegates are given proportionally to all candidates who receive at least 20% of the statewide vote.
- Otherwise, the statewide delegates are awarded proportionally to all candidates.
