"All delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention once a allocated and/or committed to a particular candidate by virtue of the June primary election shall be obligated and required to cast their vote for that candidate at the first vote to select the Republican Party's nominee for the office of President of the United States at the Republican National Convention."
"Any delegate or alternate allocated and/or committed to a particular candidate by virtue of the results of the June primary election who fails or refuses to act in accordance with their allocation and/or commitment to that candidate as set forth herein shall be subject to censure by the New Jersey Republican State Committee and/or the County Republican Committees. Censure may include, among other things, being permanently barred from acting as a delegate or alternate to any future National Convention of the Republican Party."The operation of these Rules allows for conscientious delegates-elect to exercise their judgment at the convention. This is, after all, how republics work. America is not a direct democracy, it never has been, and the Founding Fathers actually recognized the dangers of direct democracy. (A careful reading of The Federalist Papers is in order, if you wish.) While you can dial in the objections of opposing candidates, these rules are posted and explained so readers can understand that delegates who vote for Trump this summer, and hide behind the explanation that they were "required" to do so, are simply using an excuse to avoid criticism.
