Nevada's Democratic Viability Precinct Caucuses meet in each precinct. Voting begins at 12 noon PST. After the announcement of the initial caucus results, if there are any non-viable preference groups, caucus attendees in those non-viable preference groups may realign with a viable group. The viability percentage is determined by the number of precincts delegates to be elected (1 delegate: 50%, 2 delegates: 25%, 3 delegates: 16.6%, 4 or more delegates: 15%). Presidential preference is locked in at the final expression (either the first or second vote) of preference at the viability precinct caucuses. 23 of 49 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in proportion to the percentage of the support each candidate receives in county delegate equivalences. A mandatory 15 percent threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates at the congressional district and statewide levels. 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.
  • 13 delegates are to be allocated to presidential contenders based on the support among the delegates to the State Convention as a whole.
    • 8 at-large National Convention delegates
    • 5 Pledged PLEOs
