How Does the Delegation Process
Excitement is building about the 2016 Republican Convention
in Cleveland, less than one year from now!
Many people have questions about just how delegates are
selected to attend and cast their votes to select the Republican
nominee. I offer
specifically pertaining to Ohio, that I hope will make it more clear. The rules vary some among
states and jurisdictions (such as U.S. Territories and the District of

deeper may wish to click HERE to access the “Green
Paper” which gives
information about the RNC rules as they apply to the entire country.
Presidential Primary election will be
held on March 15, 2016. The
state, “All delegates shall be elected or selected not later than 45
(Friday, June 3, 2016) before the national convention.
The number of delegates allocated to each state and
jurisdiction is determined by a formula that takes into account several
base delegates are determined by the
number of U.S. Senators and U.S. House Members elected by each state. This amounts to five for
each Senate seat, or
ten for each state; and 3 District delegates for each U.S.
regardless of party. This
adds up to 58
base delegates for Ohio.
are allocated for Party Leaders: the
National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the Chairman of
State Republican Party. This brings the total to 61 delegates for Ohio.
delegates are awarded based on the number
of party members elected as Presidential Electors in 2012, Governors
(2012-2015), House Members (2012-2015), Senators (2010-2015), and state
legislatures (2012-2015.) For
there will be 0 delegates in the first category since Obama won Ohio; 1
delegate awarded since we have a Republican Governor; 1 for our
Senator; 1 because 50% or more of Ohio’s U.S. House Members are
because one body of the Ohio General Assembly is majority Republican;
because both bodies in the General Assembly are majority Republican. This brings the grand
total of delegates allocated
to Ohio to 66.
will also be 63 alternate delegates, who
will serve in the event that a designated delegate cannot.

wins the Ohio Presidential primary election, even if only by one vote,
awarded all delegates. In

are bound by the RNC rules to vote for the
winner of their state’s primary at the nominating convention. There was a dust-up, you
may recall, at the
2012 convention, when some delegates pledged to Mitt Romney expressed
for Ron Paul. A
delegate, by the 2016
rules, can be removed for demonstrating support for a candidate other
to which he or she is bound.
you are interested in becoming a delegate for your
preferred candidate for President, the time to start becoming involved
now. Contact the
Ohio Republican Party,
and you will be given contact information for the campaign organization. Call your campaign’s
office, and sign on as
an activist and supporter. You
certainly communicate your interest in being selected as a delegate,
chances will depend on your personal characteristics, your ability to
influence, and your demonstrated willingness to work for your candidate. The campaign committee
will be looking at you
and gauging your commitment; your steadiness under pressure and whether
might be susceptible to threat or bribe; your judgment and ability to
from making rash statements; whether you have potentially embarrassing
“baggage” in your history; the breadth and quality of your contacts and
supporters who can help to gain support for your candidate; and,

on the Square
May 3, downtown Troy will once again showcase a sculpture from world
renowned artist J. Seward Johnson, Jr. The 2015 display will deviate
from past exhibits in that it will offer one significant sculpture,
rather than multiple smaller sculptures, and feature a 25-foot bronze
sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and a modern-day man. This sculpture is of
monumental scale and Troy will be the first city in the world to
receive the sculpture for public viewing! The exhibition will remain on
display through October.
Sculptures on the Square is made
possible by a grant from The Troy Foundation and is presented by Troy
Main Street in partnership with the City of Troy.
