Monday 30 August - Thursday 2 September 2004: 38th Republican National Convention, New York City, New York

The 38th REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION will have a total of 2,509 delegates, with 1,255 (a majority) necessary in order for a Presidential or Vice-Presidential candidate to be nominated.

The rules for the 2004 Republican National Convention call for the following formula for determining the number of delegates:

  • For the 50 states:
    • 10 at-large delegates for each state
    • 3 delegates for each congressional district in the state
    • "Bonus" delegates are awarded to states which cast their electoral vote for the 2000 Republican presidential nominee (George W. Bush), such states receiving 4.5 delegates plus 60 percent of their 2000 electoral vote.
    • States are also given one "bonus" delegate for each of the following:
      • a Republican United States Senator;
      • a delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives which is at least half Republican;
      • a Republican Governor;
      • a house of the state's Legislature controlled by Republicans or in which the Republican membership has increased by at least 25 percent of the total number of seats;
      • Republican control of both houses of the state's Legislature.
  • 6 at large delegates for American Samoa
  • 16 at large delegates for the District of Columbia
  • 6 at large delegates for Guam
  • 20 at large delegates for Puerto Rico
  • 6 at large delegates for the Virgin Islands
  • For all 50 states, American Samoa, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands - 3 party leaders: the national committeeman, the national committee woman, and the chairman of the state Republican Party
