The Washington Republican primary is closed. Only registered Republicans may vote in the GOP primary. Delegate Award Methodology
Check out the Washington Democratic Caucus page for a description of how Washington Democrats award their delegates.
All Washington delegates (44) 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 (30 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 or if three or more candidates receive at least 20%, then the top three vote-getters are each awarded one delegate.
