Saturday 20 February 2016: Nevada's Democratic Viability Precinct Caucuses meet in each precinct. Voting begins at 12 noon PST. 23 of 43 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in proportion to the percentage of the support each candidate receives in each Congressional District. A mandatory 15 percent threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates at the congressional district level. Here is how the Democratic Proportional Delegate Allocation Math works.

  • 23 district delegates are to be allocated proportionally to presidential contenders based on the results in each of the State's 4 congressional districts.

The number of national convention pledged PLEO and At-Large delegates can be estimated based on voting in today's caucuses.

In addition, each Precinct Caucus chooses delegates to the County Conventions based on presidential preference.

 

Saturday 2 April 2016: County Conventions convene in each county. Each County Convention chooses delegates to the Nevada State Democratic Convention. County conventions are called to order by 10:00 am PDT.

  • These County Conventions choose the county's delegates to the Nevada State Democratic Convention. While a non-binding Presidential Preference Poll is conducted during the Conventions, delegates at the County level are not bound to their declared Presidential preference.

We have received emails stating that Sanders did well at the County Conventions.

https://www.ralstonreports.com/blog/sanders-likely-flips-two-delegates-after-dominating-clark-convention
"That is expected to switch two delegates to Sanders, giving Clinton an 18-17 lead in Nevada"

and

We believe the article below is not correct.

On 4 March 2013, SB 212 was introduced by Settelmeyer, Cegavske, Hardy, and Wheeler. This bill would change the ... primary ... from the 2nd Tuesday in June ... to the Tuesday immediately preceding the last Tuesday in January [19 January 2016] ... If another state in the Western United States ... schedules its presidential preference primary election for a date earlier in January ... section 8 requires the Secretary of State, with the approval of the Legislative Commission, to select a date for the primary election which is not earlier than January 2 and not a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday. [NRS 293.175]

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.

 

Notes

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.
