Ronald Reagan--the incumbent President-- was the assured nominee for the Republican Party. He was renominated by a vote of 2,233 (two delegates abstained).

For the only time in American history, the vice presidential roll call was taken concurrently with the presidential roll call. Results:

**George H.W. Bush 2,231
**Jeane J. Kirkpatrick 1
**Jack F. Kemp 1
**Abstaining 2

This was the last time in the 20th century that the Vice Presidential candidate of either major party was nominated by roll call vote.
