(Carson City, NV; February 4, 2020) –The Nevada Secretary of State’s Elections Division reminds voters that the Secretary of State’s office and county election officials have no role whatsoever in the Nevada presidential caucus process. While state election officials encourage participation in the process, the presidential caucuses are run entirely by the political parties and are not considered elections under state law. All decisions with regards to administering the caucuses, including the technology used to support the process, are made by the parties and have nothing to do with the Office of the Nevada Secretary of State.

Individuals with questions concerning the Democratic presidential caucus are encouraged to contact the Nevada State Democratic Party. The Nevada State Republican Party will not be holding a presidential caucus in Nevada in 2020.
