Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will take nine Hawaii delegates and rival Rick Santorum five, according to the official results of the GOP caucus, released Saturday evening.

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas will receive three delegates.

Results certified by the state Executive Committee show that Romney received 4,548 votes, or roughly 45 percent of 10,228 cast, in the state GOP caucus Tuesday.

Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, received 2,589 votes, Paul had 1,975 and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich received 1,116, according to an email from state Republican Chairman David Chang. 

Participation on the neighbor islands and rural Honolulu — the 2nd U.S. House District — outpaced that of urban Honolulu, the 1st U.S. House District.

In the 1st House District, the vote tallies were:

>> Romney: 1,742.

>> Santorum: 1,160.

>> Paul: 631.

>> Gingrich: 474.

TOTAL: 4,007

In the 2nd House District, the tallies were:

>> Romney: 2,806.

>> Santorum: 1,429.

>> Paul: 1,344.

>> Gingrich: 642.

TOTAL: 6,221

The results changed only slightly from the preliminary tally Tuesday night, when Romney had 4,250 votes, Santorum 2,369, Paul 1,712 and Gingrich 1,034. The official tally included mail-in ballots.

Although none of the candidates have made a campaign stop in Hawaii, Ronnie Paul, Elizabeth Santorum and Matt Romney crossed the Pacific to rally support for their fathers heading into Tuesday's caucus. Gingrich, who spoke to the Maui Tea Party in September, kept his attention on Alabama and Mississippi primaries.

Santorum topped Gingrich and Romney in Alabama and Mississippi, with Paul coming in a distant fourth place.
