At their 7 September 2019, the Nevada Republican Party state central committee will consider Resolution R-108 to amend their delegate selection to provide for an alternative presidential poll. "If the NRCC Executive Committee determines that a statewide presidential poll is unnecessary to determine the will of the majority of registered Nevada Republican voters it may, at its sole discretion, call for a poll among the members of the NRCC to determine proportional allocation and binding of delegates and alternates ... The Alternative Presidential Preference Poll may only be used when there is an incumbent Republican President ...."
The above change would effective transfer the Presidential Preference vote from the precinct caucuses to the 20 member state central committee.
SB 211, introduced on 27 February 2017, would establish Democratic and Republican Presidential Primaries on a weekday February. 27 April 2017: AB 293 and SB 211 are dead.
Only registered Republicans in Nevada are already eligible to participate in the caucuses [Section 1.3]. Neither "write-in" ballots nor a "none of the above" option shall be permitted [Section 2.1 b].
Tuesday 25 February 2020 (presumably): Republican Party Precinct Caucuses meet. Each Precinct Caucus casts votes for Presidential candidates by secret ballot and chooses the precinct's delegates to the County Conventions. Caucuses will take place between 5p and 9p PST. Absentee ballots are permitted [Section 4]. The delegates to the County Conventions are not bound by the Presidential vote.
Nevada's delegates are bound for the 1st ballot at the National Convention [Standing Rules 5.1]. National Delegates bound to any candidate who withdraws, suspends, or otherwise discontinues their campaign at any time following the Nevada Republican Convention but prior to the Republican National Convention are released from their commitment [Standing Rules 5.4]. Presidential candidates may elect to either affirm the binding of their delegates, release the binding obligation, or proportionally reallocate their delegates to the remaining candidates based on the results of the Presidential Preference Poll [Standing Rules 5.3].
If one candidate wins all of the National Delegates, the chairman will attend the National Convention unbound [Standing Rules 5.2].
Saturday 14 March - Saturday 4 April 2020 (presumably): Republican Party County Conventions convene in each county. Each County Convention chooses delegates to the Nevada State Republican Convention.
Friday 8 May - Sunday 10 May 2020 (presumably): The Nevada State Republican Convention convenes. The State Convention meets to choose delegates to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the Precinct Caucuses. National Convention District Delegates are elected by the Convention Delegates from each such congressional district [Standing Rules 3.2]. National Convention At-Large Delegates are elected by the Convention delegates as a whole [Standing Rules 3.3]. Note: The bindings are recalculated to exclude candidates who suspended their campaigns.
The 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Nevada's Republican Party, will attend the convention by virtue of their position bound to their preferred presidential candidate [Standing Rules 4.2]. If one candidate wins all of the National Delegates, the chairman will attend the National Convention unbound [Standing Rules 5.2].
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.
