This is going to be fun.

On the Democrat side.
Casino's on the strip will be allowing workers to Caucus from the workplace.
Sounds convenient, for the workers. But here is my problem with the process:

The Culinary Union was allowed to pick the locations.
A large percentage of the voters will be members of the Culinary Union.
It is NOT a secret ballot. Everyone present will know who everyone else is voting for.
An invitation for coercion, or other "persuasive" tactics??
Wonder if any Union reps will be there?


On the Republican side:
The Caucusing Rules have changed 3 times over the last week.
There are ballot shortages in many areas of the state.
The Caucus invitations are being sent to the wrong locations, hundreds from Reno, ended up in Vegas.
Many of the Reno Invitations are getting to the correct home, but give incorrect addresses to polling places.


welcome to the WILD WEST!

Wow, crazy crazy. We can undoubtedly admit that on the Republican side, a mess is happening because of the little attention to the state on the G.O.P side. I'm rooting for Hillary to win, an easy prey for the Republicans in November

I'm still waiting for Final instructions so I can vote.
It's really weird.
As a Republican participant. It's even a Race to the precinct. because..get this..

"The first person to pick up the precinct packet from the Republican volunteer at the high school becomes the Temporary Precinct Caucus Chairman (captain). The next person becomes the Temporary Precinct Caucus Secretary."

Weird, it may be out there Space. But, who are you voting for? If you don't mind telling us.

I have a question Space. Is it a take all delegates for Romney? Or will they be divided? And if they are going to be divided, whats a rough estimate of the number of delegates Romney and others will receive?

My "vote" will be going to Ron Paul.
Same with the two carloads of people we are transporting.

This is NV's first Caucus but the delegates are not binding.

Here are the Republican Rules:




Here’s how the Nevada Republican Party Caucus works:
The Nevada Republican Presidential Caucus will be 9 a.m. Jan. 19 at approximately 500 sites throughout Nevada.
People interested in finding their neighborhood caucus location can look it up at www.nvgopcaucus.com or go to page 7.
Participants sign in and their names are checked against the voter rolls.
Participants must be registered as Republican 30 days before the caucus.
Participants will elect delegates to attend the county convention on March 5. At the county convention, new delegates will be elected to the state convention April 26 in Reno.
The delegates who attend both the district and state will eventually have an opportunity to represent the state’s interest at the National Republican Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn., from Sept. 1-4. Their votes for delegates will determine Nevada’s preferred candidate for president.
Participants who have resolutions for the Republican Party Platform will turn them in to the caucus chair.
A representative from each presidential campaign will be give two to three minutes to address the caucus and explain why they believe their candidate should receive the Republican nomination.
Attendees will cast their vote by secret ballot for their preferred candidate.


From:www.lahontanvalleynews.com...


A very indirect way of Voting, if you ask me.
There are no absentee ballots. This means NOT ONE DEPLOYED Nevadan Soldier can vote. Or anyone else out of town, for that matter.

A bit sickening, contrived, and controlled.

Agreed, I'm assuming you say my 'vote' with a bit of sarcasm. Does the New Hampshire thing have you angry? Or concerned?

I'm a little concerned about New Hampshire.
It's important to know that the vote counts are accurate.
So the recount is important, if there were any concerns.

The winners never want a recount though..

I thought there wasn't going to be a recount? I guess I was wrong, when are the results in? Good thing Kucinich is around
It'd be nice if there was a error and Paul won, get that poor guy some air time.

Right about now is when we need ole John Wayne to step
down from his horse, pull out his 6 shooter and say:

"Well Pilgrim, we're gonna have equal time for everyone"

LOL

Good showing for Paul, 2nd place behind Mitt!

Yep, I pretty proud of Nevadans for taking the time to get up and vote.

Mitt did well here, as expected.
He spent the most money here. And Virtually locked up the mormon vote.

Paul showed higher than "expected". I hope that trend repeats.
