The rules used by both Vermont political parties to allocate national convention delegates could result in delegations that do not reflect the preferences of the voters in the March 1 Vermont primary.
Vermont sends 16 delegates to the Republican National Convention. If one candidate receives 50 percent or more of the primary vote — an unlikely outcome, considering the number of Republican candidates — that candidate wins all 16 delegates. Otherwise, the delegates are divided proportionally among all candidates with at least 20 percent of the primary vote.
