WHAT HAPPENS AT CONVENTION
Every four years, the Republican Party has a Convention to determine the Party Platform, vote on the rules to govern the Party, and to nominate candidates for President and Vice President.
THE DELEGATES
Delegates are selected and empowered at the grassroots level by their peers to represent their state or territory at the Convention. There are 2,472 delegates.
BECOMING THE NOMINEE
A candidate must win the votes of a majority of delegates to secure the nomination. In 2016, the magic number is 1,237 (50% + 1 of the 2,472 Convention delegates). Most delegates will go to Convention “bound” to vote for a particular candidate, based on how their state or territory voted.
THE RULES
The rules of the Convention are unique to each Convention and voted upon by the delegates.
THE RNC’S ROLE

The RNC plays a purely administrative role at Convention, ensuring that therules and processes are carried out in a transparent manner.
