LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Many Nevadans were faced with long lines for the first day of early voting for the Democratic caucus, but those lined proved to be a successful turnout for the party. The Nevada State Democratic Party said in a tweet that they had 18,538 Nevada Democrats participate in the first day of early voting.
Of the more than 18,000 voters that participated in the first day, NV Dems says 56 percent of the them were first time caucus-goers, meaning that they did not participate in the 2008 or 2016 caucuses.
As of 9 a.m. Monday, NV Dems said that more than 26,000 Nevadans participated in the first two days of the early voting process.
Some voters reported that they waited three to five hours to early vote at Coronado High School on Saturday. Wait times seemed to vary from five minutes to five hours on the first day.
Early voting for the caucus continues through Tuesday, Feb. 18. To find your closest voting site, click here.
