An 18-member committee will recommend to the full convention a list of 12 at-large and alternate at-large delegates. Pursuant to an Illinois Republican Party resolution passed on September 28, 2015, those delegates are bound to the winner of the statewide Presidential preference vote at the General Primary Election on March 15, 2016.
