Nevada 2016 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions:
Democrats   Republicans


AB 302, introduced by Assemblymen John Hambrick (Republican) and Stephen Silberkraus (Republican) on 13 March 2015, would move the parisan primary and create a concurrent state Presidential primary on the Tuesday immediately preceding the last Tuesday in January (19 January 2016). The partisan primary is currently scheduled for the 2nd Tuesday in June (14 June 2016).

SB 421, introduced on 22 March 2015 by the Legislative Operations and Elections, is similar to AB302 but would set the primary date to the last Tuesday in February. 1 June 2015: The legislature adjourns without acting on this bill.

Political Parties    Parties appear in parenthesis and italics when a candidate receives the endorsement of a given Party and/or official sources indicate a candidate's association with a particular Party but only where the Party in question does not appear on the actual ballot as such.

Major Parties
  Democratic (affiliates): 2 incumbents, 11 candidates
  Republican: 10 incumbents, 14 candidates
Major Third Parties
  Green (affiliates)
  Libertarian: 1 candidate
Other Third Parties
  Independent American (affiliate of Constitution)
  Justice Party
  Right to Life
  Unity
Independents

Candidates running under the banner of more than one party are counted towards each party's total. A candidate who has lost a primary or is apparently no longer a candidate is not counted.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

"Apparently not a candidate" indicates that someone we once listed as a candidate for an elective office will not, in fact, be running for that office (primarily because said candidate is not listed on an official ballot provided by a jurisdiction's election authorities, where that candidate has not previously withdrawn his/her candidacy or otherwise indicated no longer [or even ever] being a candidate for that office).

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
