Saturday 19 January 2008 Precinct Caucuses
Final Saturday 19 January 2008 Precinct Caucus results from a party source. Below is an estimate of the 19 January 2008 delegate count by CD. Note that no national convention delegates are elected on 19 January. The process of allocating national convention delegates begins in April. Reference: http://www.mydd.com/story/2008/1/19/181854/832.
District 1: Clinton 3, Obama 3
Total: Obama 13, Clinton 12.
Here's how we estimate the delegate count on 10 January 2008: (Since we do not have a breakdown of the vote by CD)
Articles in the Reno Gazette-Journal and AP report that Obama won 14 national delegates to Clinton's 11 at the State Convention. With about 2,510 state delegates participating, Obama received 55% to Clinton's 45%. An estimate made from the caucus results predicted Obama 13 and Clinton 12. The reason for the difference was Obama out performed Clinton in rural areas of Nevada and Washoe County.
Unpledged delegates as of
Saturday 19 January 2008: Democratic Party Caucuses meet in each precinct. Each Precinct Caucus chooses delegates to County Conventions based on presidential preference.
Saturday 23 February 2008: County Conventions convene in each county. Each County Convention chooses delegates to the Nevada State Democratic Convention.
Saturday 17 May - Sunday 18 May 2008: The Nevada State Democratic Convention convenes to choose 25 of Nevada's 34 delegates to the Democratic National Convention. A mandatory 15 percent threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates at either the congressional district or statewide level.
The remaining 9 National Convention delegates consist of
These 9 delegates and will go to the Democratic National Convention officially "Unpledged".
