Idaho Republican Primary Today

Latest Update: Revolution in Idaho: 24% for Ron Paul!

Idaho votes today in an open Republican primary. The state will be sending a total of 32 delegates to the GOP National Convention.

26 of these delegates are proportionally allocated to the presidential contenders based on today’s statewide Presidential primary vote. A 5% threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates.

The remaining 8 delegates are unpledged and are selected during the Idaho State Republican Convention from June 12 to June 14, 2008:

  • 3 National Convention delegates are chosen by the convention as a whole. These 3 delegates will go to the National Convention officially “Unpledged”.
  • 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Idaho’s Republican Party, will attend the convention as unpledged delegates by virtue of their position.

Delegates are bound to vote for the candidate who nominated them on the first ballot taken at the GOP Convention. Delegates selected as “uncommitted” may cast their vote for any candidate whose name has been placed in nomination before the Convention. In the event of death, withdrawal, or release of delegates by a candidate prior to the first ballot, those delegates become uncommitted.

Today’s primary results will be available here.

Ron Paul and John McCain are the only Republicans left in the race.
