Most of the delegates, 26 of 32 total, are divided proportionally based on the outcome of the primary: Sanders gets 15, and Clinton gets nine. (Each candidate also gets to have an alternate delegate on standby.)
But there’s another group of eight delegates — including Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, Rep. Annie Kuster, all of whom endorsed Clinton during the primary — who are “unpledged” and could, technically, support either candidate.
Almost immediately after the primary, Sanders supporters (and some Republicans) took issue with the idea that these delegates could end up going against their state’s Democratic primary voters by backing Clinton. New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley said in February that this wasn’t going to be an issue.
“If Bernie Sanders is the likely nominee, we will all support Bernie Sanders. If Hillary Clinton is the likely nominee, we will all go with Hillary Clinton,” Buckley said. “Every single convention, we have uniformly gone with the nominee – and that’s exactly what is going to happen again.”
