Caucus de Nevada: cada condado va a su rollo

First Read:
Frankly, the process is a bit of a joke: The caucus places start and stop at different times throughout the state. Every county but Clark County (Vegas) will be closed issues results by 8:00 pm ET, Clark County (except one location) closes has results at 10:00 pm ET, and one special caucus – at the Adelson Educational Complex -- closes has results between 11:00 pm and 11:30 pm ET to allow Jews observing the Sabbath to participate.

As the Atlantic’s Ball writes, “Each county was allowed to set its own caucus procedures this year, leading to a divergent array of start times and rules across the state… The bizarre arrangement leaves the door open to all kinds of campaign hijinks. Party officials say attendees at the evening caucus will have to sign an affidavit swearing that they didn't already vote earlier, and their names will be checked against the voter rolls.” There are 28 delegates at stake, and they will be divided up proportionally. Note: The earliest networks will call the race is at 10:00 pm ET, when the final caucus sites close.
