Nevada Republican caucuses: How to follow them
Nevada Republicans are caucusing Saturday to determine who receives the state’s 28 delegates to the Republican National Convention.
What is the schedule?
The 125 caucuses were scheduled at different times across the state’s 17 counties. Most began by 4 p.m. ET, except one in Clark County for those who observe a Sabbath on Saturday, which begins at 10 p.m. ET.
At each caucus, anyone can give a two-minute speech in support of a candidate, but voting is done by anonymous paper ballot and can be done in as little as 20 minutes. For more on how the caucus system works, read this primer.
Unofficial results will be available starting at 8 p.m. ET through the Nevada Republican party in partnership with Google and Twitter. You can follow those results here beginning at 8 p.m. ET or follow the official AP results here on our Nevada caucus tracker.
