Runoffs are required in nine states between the top two finishers in a primary election where no candidate achieves a required threshold. In Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas a majority, or over 50%, is required to avoid a runoff. In North Carolina, candidates must win the primary by at least 30% of the vote to become the nominee or the race goes to a second primary. In South Dakota, it is 35%, but that applies only to congressional and gubernatorial primaries.
