It had nothing to do with

It had nothing to do with binding/unbinding delegates. It was simply a state convention procedure that said that there had to be a quorum to vote for state chairman - a quorum being a majority of the delegates registered for the convention being present, and if the delegates weren't present, alternates would be seated to make quorum. It only has to do with state business.
