Louisiana has 46 delegates, but only 20 will be allocated on Saturday. The state awards these 20 delegates proportionally to any candidate who garners 25 percent or more of the vote, according to The Green Papers. Of the remaining 26 delegates, 23 will be chosen at the state convention but will technically be uncommitted to any candidate. The final three delegates are unpledged party officials.
