From Oregon Party ByLaws:

National Convention

Section A. Delegates to the National Convention.

On or before July 1 of the year before the year in which the national convention is to be held, the Oregon Republican Party State Central Committee shall adopt and certify and file with the Republican National Committee special rules to provide for the selection of delegates and alternate delegates to the Republican National Convention. These special rules shall

(1) be consistent with the Bylaws of the Oregon Republican State Central Committee; and

(2) adhere to the most recent rules adopted by the Republican National Convention.

Such special rules for the selection of Delegates to the Republican National Convention shall be enacted in the same manner as Bylaws and that procedure shall conform to Article XXVI. These special rules for the selection of delegates to the Republican National Convention shall only be in effect for the convention for which they were enacted.

Section B. Delegate Conduct at the Republican National Convention.

Candidates for delegate and alternate to the Republican National Convention must state which Presidential Preference Primary candidate they favor, and will be listed as running for one of the delegate positions assigned to that presidential candidate. Each person selected as a delegate or alternate shall sign a pledge that he/she shall vote at the National Convention for the candidate for the President of the United States he/she favors until the candidate is:

(1) nominated;

(2) receives less than 35% of the votes for nomination at the convention;

(3) releases the delegate from the pledge; or

(4) until two convention nominating ballots have been taken.

Should a delegate or alternate refuse to cast his/her vote in accordance with this pledge, as required by both the Bylaws of the Oregon Republican Party Central Committee and the Oregon Revised Statues, the Chairman of the Oregon delegation to the National Convention shall report to the convention floor that delegate’s vote in accordance with such laws and rules until such time as that delegate is released from his/her pledge.

Looks like we have to wait until the State Central Committee releases the rules for selection. :(

Looking back at this, it just dawned on me that they should have already released this...
