Additional Info

New York Republican Presidential Primary Delegate Allocation

All 95 of New York's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in the New York Presidential Primary.

81 district delegates are bound to presidential candidates based on the primary results in each of the state's 27 congressional districts. In each district, if a candidate receives more than 50% or only 1 candidate receives 20% or more of the vote, that candidate receives all 3 delegates. Otherwise, if at least 2 presidential contenders receive 20% or more of the vote, the candidate with the most votes receives 2 delegates and the candidate with the second most of votes receives 1 delegate. If no presidential contender receives 20% or more of the vote, the party will elect 3 delegates without considering the results of the primary.

14 at-large delegates are bound to presidential contenders "winner-take-most" based on the statewide primary results. If a candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, that candidate receives all 14 delegates. Otherwise, the delegates are distributed proportionally to those candidates receiving 20% or more of the vote.
