Today, the Nevada State Democratic Party released details of the 2020 virtual caucus that will take place across two days as means for those unable to attend in person on Caucus Day, February 22, 2020 to participate in the caucus. On Sunday, February 16, 2020 and Monday, February 17, 2020 Nevada Democrats will have the option of choosing their preferences for Democratic presidential nominee virtually.
“I’m proud of Nevada Democrats for stepping up and taking action to expand access to our presidential nominating process,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “Our democracy works best when more people can participate, not fewer. Nevada Democrats are working to energize our grassroots and ensure that the voice of the people rings loud and clear on Caucus Day.”
“We’re making good on our goal to make the First in the West caucus the most accessible and expansive process yet. In 2020, Nevada Democrats will now have the convenience of participating in the caucus from home–or anywhere–just by using their phone,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II. “The Silver State plays a decisive role in choosing our country’s Democratic nominee for president–We are the first Western state, the first diverse state, and the only early battleground state. We know it is imperative that Democrats across our state have every option and opportunity available to vote and I couldn’t be more excited to see this new process become a reality.”
NV Dems created a uniquely Nevada caucus process–one that represents how we vote and the communities we live in. We expanded our caucus process by offering four days of in-person early voting, two days of virtual caucuses, and multilingual presidential preference cards that include English, Spanish and Tagalog.
