The Nevada Caucus was held February 4, 2012
Read below to understand the caucus process...
Presidential Preference Poll
The choice of who you want to represent the Republican Party in the race for President
of the United States was once done in the Primary elections, typically in June. We still
have a Nevada primary election. All the local, state and U.S. Congress candidates are
on the primary ballot, but the vote for the presidential candidate is not.
The vote for the Presidential candidate is made in the caucus slated for February
4th,2011, in your precinct meeting. There you will have the opportunity to' speak for your
candidate of choice and then conduct a precinct vote. The results of the vote in your
precinct will be announced in your meeting. The results will, however, be done in a way
new for Nevada voters. This time, it is not a winner-take-all vote. It is a proportional
In a proportional vote, the number of Nevada delegates to the Republican National
Convention that are committed to a candidate depends on how well that candidate did
in the Presidential Preference Poll. For example, if candidate "A" received 25% (X) of
the votes overall when all the precinct results in Nevada are tallied, then candidate "A"
will have 25% of the Nevada delegates assigned to vote for him/her on the first round of
voting at the national convention.
Since we cannot cut a delegate into pieces, a candidate for President must earn at least
a whole delegate. The precinct meetings determine what a candidate gets, but who will
represent that candidate at the national convention is elected at the Nevada Republican
Basic Caucus Process: Members of the respective parties will meet with
other registered voters within their precinct to determine their preferred presidential
candidate and thereby award delegates to the candidates. These meetings are open to
the public, but only registered voters of the respective party may participate in the
selection process. Following a brief speech by supporters of each Presidential
candidate, caucus attendees vote in a Presidential Preference Poll. Caucus participants
will also have the ability to nominate those persons who will be the delegates. Delegate
is the title given to one person who represents one vote.
