  • May 18 to 21, 2016:  State Convention
  • May 24, 2016:  Washington State Presidential Primary
 

 
The Washington State Republican Party, at its State Committee meeting September 12 in Pasco, decided its Rules for the 2016 Caucus and Convention including delegate allocation and Caucus date.

All (100%) of our state's delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention (Cleveland - July 18-21, 2016)  will be allocated in accordance with the vote of the people in the Washington State Primary (currently scheduled for May 24th, 2016).

The WSRP State convention (Pasco - May 19-21, 2016) is four days before the Primary.  National attention will be focused on our state, and GOP presidential candidates will have a strong incentive to campaign in Washington in an effort to win the vote of the people.

The allocation of delegates is in accordance with the National Rules of the Republican Party, utilizing a proportional system, with eleven at-large delegates being allocated on a proportional basis based on the statewide vote, and three delegates allocated on a proportional basis for each Congressional District.  If a candidate receives a majority of the vote within a Congressional Delegate, that candidate will get all three delegates from that Congressional District.

All GOP caucuses will take place on Saturday February 20, with county GOP conventions taking place in March and April.  County conventions will elect delegates to the state convention, which in turn will elect delegates to the national convention.  100% of our state's Republican delegates to the national convention will be bound by the decision of the VOTERS, unlike the Democrats whose nominee will be chosen by a small percentage of Democrats at their statewide caucuses in March.


Respectfully, 

Susan Hutchison
Chairman, Washington State Republican Party
