Tuesday 6 February 2024: Nevada Presidential Preference Primary. Delegate Pledging: Proportional Primary. Voter Eligibility: Closed Primary.
Any person who is eligible to vote in the state of Nevada and will be at least 18 years old on Election Day, 5 November 2024, may participate. Participants must reside in the precinct in which they wish to participate and must be registered as a Democrat. Registration or change in party affiliation may occur on a caucus day.
Early Voting is held TBD February. The tallies are added to the 24 February caucus results. If an early voting or participant's first choice does not meet the viability threshold at the 24 February caucuses, their next choice(s) will be honored. Early vote participants may make up to five total choices in order of preference.
"Strip Caucuses", where there is a large concentration of shift workers, will be on 24 February.
Saturday 24 February 2024 (presumably): Nevada Precinct Viability Caucuses. Hours reportedly begin at 10:00a PST (1800 UTC). Delegate Pledging: Proportional Caucus/Convention. Voter Eligibility: Closed Caucus/Convention.
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 50 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.
In addition, each Precinct Caucus chooses delegates to the County Conventions based on presidential preference.
Saturday 20 April 2024 (presumably): County Conventions convene in each county. Hours reportedly begin at 10:00a PDT (1700 UTC). Each County Convention chooses delegates to the Nevada State Democratic Convention.
Saturday 25 May 2024 (presumably): The Nevada State Democratic Convention convenes. The National Convention delegates are elected according to the results of the precinct caucuses.
