Three voters neglected to add the name of their Write-In choice, and so 6 points went into a “No Name” category.
The following two individuals were written in, however they were not eligible for a Write-In vote with AZGP during the 2020 Presidential Primary.

The Arizona Green Party State Committee has adopted the following recommendation for delegate apportionment for the State of Arizona to the July 11th Green Party National Presidential Nominating Convention:
3 delegates pledged to Howie Hawkins
2 delegates pledged to Dario Hunter
1 delegate pledged to Unassigned
Here is the math that supports this recommendation:
Total points of 716 divided by 6 (the total number of delegates from Arizona) equals 119.3.
- Hawkins points: 304/119.3 è 2.55 delegate equivalents = 3 delegates
- Hunter points: 228/119.3 è 1.91 delegate equivalents = 2 delegates
- Since no other candidate received the minimum for one delegate which was 119 points, then the last delegate is undeclared.
The delegate apportionment results were approved by consensus on July 2, 2020.
