2016 Nevada State Democratic Party Precinct Caucuses

WHEN:  Saturday February 20, 2016

TIME:  11 a.m. PST (Doors open at 10 am for same-day registration)

What are the Nevada Caucuses?
The Nevada Caucuses are gatherings of neighbors, organized by the Nevada State Democratic Party (NSDP), where Democrats join others in their precincts to begin the process of  registering preferences for Democratic candidates running for President. With our First-in-the-West status, Nevadans will be the third state to share our recommendations on the Democratic Presidential nominee to the rest of the country. The Precinct Caucuses are also the organizational foundation of the NSDP.

Who can participate in the caucus?
Any person who is eligible to vote in the state of Nevada and will be at least 18 years old on Election Day, November 8, 2016, may participate. You must reside in the precinct in which they wish to participate, and must be registered as a Democrat — you may register or change party affiliation on caucus day.

Where are the caucuses held?
Generally your caucus site will be close to home, neighborhood meeting points such as schools, community centers, churches are used as caucus locations. The exact location for each precinct will be announced in the winter.

How do the Democratic Caucuses work?
Eligible caucus goers divide to form Presidential preference groups. If a preference group for a candidate does not have enough people to be considered “viable,” a threshold set at the beginning of the day, eligible attendees will have an opportunity to join another preference group or acquire people into their group to become viable. Delegates are then awarded to the preference groups based on their size. Caucus day will also feature the opportunity for anyone interested in being on the county central committee to sign up as well as the submission of resolutions for the county platform.

At the end of the day, who is determined as the “Winner” of the Nevada Caucuses?

On caucus day, Nevadans in each precinct elect delegates to their respective county conventions, but the winner of the caucuses will be the candidate who accrues the most delegates.

Any caucus participant may stand for election as a delegate to the county convention.   Anyone who wants to be elected a national delegate must participate in the precinct caucuses, and each subsequent event –county convention on April 2, 2016, and the state convention on May 14 and 15, 2016.

How are results reported?
Results from each of the precincts will be reported to the Nevada State Democratic Party by precinct chairs.

Can press attend?
Yes—all caucus locations are open to the public and press.
