LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — According to Nevada Dems, nearly 75,000 Nevadans turned out to participate during four days of early voting in the state. On Wednesday morning, Tom Perez, the Chair of the Democratic National Committee, speculated that early voting numbers could reach 70,000.
Nevada Dems reports that Tuesday’s early voting numbers was more than 33,000 bringing the estimation of all four days to about 70,000.
Majority of early vote participants were first-time caucus-goers, Nevada Dems said.
The numbers so far for early voting in the 2020 Nevada caucus are as followed:
- Saturday-Monday: More than 36,000 Democrats turned out during the first three days of early voting.
- On Monday, day three of early voting, there were 10,027 people who participated across 19 sites.
In voting in 2016, the Democrat caucus netted 84,000 voters. So, the Nevada caucus could be on-trend to pass the numbers from the last caucus.
On Tuesday, the last day of voting, there were still long lines reported in several sites. Nevada Dems ran 82 conveniently located early voting sites, with at least one in every county. Nearly 900 volunteers were trained on caucus procedure and technology.
