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 [Standing Rules Section 4]. The delegates to the County Conventions are not bound by the Presidential vote.

If all 26 delegates are to be bound, the threshold is 3.846%. If the RNC delegates are excluded, that is, 23 are to be bound, the threshold is 4.348%.

  • All 26 National Convention delegates are proportionally bound to Presidential contenders based on today's caucus vote.
  • A 3.846% threshold is required in order for a contender to be allocated delegates [1 ÷ 26 delegates = 3.846%].
  • Standing Rules Chapter 3 §1.0 says "National Delegates ... shall be allocated proportionally based on the final results ... rounded to the nearest whole number" while Subsection 8.1 says "When rounding off numbers in the calculation of the allocation of Delegates, the calculation will be based on the largest remainder method". Standing Rules 1.0 and 8.1 appear to be contradictory.
    Interpretation A:
    For those candidates receiving 3.846% or more of the vote: The number of delegates = 26 × (candidate's popular vote) ÷ (total statewide vote for those candidates exceeding the threshold) rounded to the nearest whole number. If a delegate remains, round up the candidate with the largest remainder (?). Not sure what to do if rounding allocates too many delegates.
    Interpretation B (largest remainder method):
    For those candidates receiving 3.846% or more of the vote: The number of delegates = 26 × (candidate's popular vote) ÷ (total statewide vote for those candidates exceeding the threshold). Award each candidate the whole number of delegates. Beginning with the candidate with the largest remainder, round up to the next whole number. Repeat for the next highest remainder until all delegates are allocated.

31 May 2023: Nevada GOP says it's suing to restore state presidential caucuses from KSNV.

31 May 2023: Statement from the Nevada Republican Party on Lawsuit to Restore a Republican Presidential Caucus

Today, the Nevada Republican Party filed a lawsuit against the State of Nevada to ensure that only Republicans will decide the method of choosing our Republican Presidential nominee.
Due to the inability of Nevada Democrats to execute a smooth, efficient caucus, they want to use unaccountable dark money in an attempt to force Republicans to change the way we choose our Presidential nominee, and allow out-of-state interests to interfere in the Nevada GOP nominating process. The first four early states continue to stand together to maintain our historic role in the Presidential nominating process. Despite the continued stonewalling of Governor Lombardo’s election bills seeking voter ID and transparent, accountable elections, the Nevada Republican Party will never stop fighting for free and fair elections. We look forward to the precedent that political parties may decide their method of choosing their nominee being upheld in court.

31 May 2023: Nevada Republican Party sues to stop from being forced to use a presidential primary instead of a caucus from Election Law Blog.

Nevada Republican Party v State of Nevada, 1st Judicial District, Carson City, Nevada. 23-0000051-1B.

Precedent: Arizona State Democratic Committee v Hull, Maricopa County Superior Court cv96-909. Result: By Freedom of Association the party was free to decide.

4 June 2021: Nevada Governor Stephen F. "Steve" Sisolak (Democratic) signed AB126 (Assemblymen Frierson, Benitez-Thompson and Brittney Miller). The bill established a Presidential Primary for the 1st Tuesday in February. The primary is held when more than 1 candidate files.

22 June 2023: Nevada officials call for dismissal of GOP lawsuit to stop presidential primary election from the Nevada Independent. The attorney general says that the Nevada Republican Party's case does not have merit. The party is not bound by the results of the state's primary.

10 July 2023: Judge James Russell denied a suit (Republican Party v State, Carson City 23-0000051-1B) to prevent the state from holding a Presidential Primary per AB126 2021. The party plans to appeal.

14 August 2023: Republicans in this crucial early voting state may cast ballots twice for GOP presidential nomination [8 February] from Fox News.

14 August 2023: Nevada Republicans will hold 2024 presidential caucuses on February 8 from CNN.
