2020 California Republican Primary

Date: March 3, 2020
Delegates: 172
Allocation: Threshold
Threshold: 20% (minimum vote to win delegates)
Notes: Winner Take All where a candidate exceeds 50%. Otherwise, proportional based on number of candidates reaching 20%. Some delegates allocated statewide and some by Congressional District. State GOP has developed a delegate workaround should Donald Trump be excluded from the ballot for not providing his tax returns.

Information is estimated and subject to change. Delegate allocation rules can be very complex; this overview may not capture some details. For those interested in the finer points, we suggest Greenpapers or FHQ.
