Understanding the Nevada Caucus

Nearly 75,000 Nevadans turned out to participate during four days of early voting days ago.  In 2016, the Nevada Caucus netted 84,000 voters with a trend to surpass this figure. 

After the problems that surfaced in the Iowa Caucus, when an app used to calculate results failed, the Nevada State Democratic Party detailed on Friday how it would report the caucus results and ensured the public, the state party was taking action to avoid the issues that were seen in Iowa following the faulty app. To view the result counting process click here.
