All about the Georgia primary

How the primary works

In the Republican primary, 76 delegates are at stake, the most of any of the 10 states voting Tuesday.

• Each of the state’s 14 congressional districts have three delegates to award. Any candidate who gets a majority of the vote in a district wins all three delegates. If no candidate gets a majority, the top finisher gets two delegates, the runner-up gets one.

• There are also 31 delegates at stake in the statewide vote. Any candidate who gets at least 20 percent of the statewide vote can win delegates, which will be awarded on a proportional basis determined by the final vote. Any remaining delegates left unpledged will be awarded sequentially to the qualifying candidates.

• The remaining three delegates — state party Chairwoman Sue Everhart and the two members of the Republican National Committee — will be awarded to the candidate receiving the highest statewide vote.
