There has been one major change to the Nevada Democratic Party's First in the West Presidential Caucus in 2020. That is the addition of an Early Voting option. This is to allow for more voter participation in the process. Early Voting in Churchill County will be held Saturday through Tuesday, February 15-18, 2020 at the Old Post Office in Fallon. Early Voting will be a fairly easy process and will take a small amount of time.
The Presidential Precinct Caucuses will occur on Saturday, February 22, 2020. There will be two locations for the precinct caucus. Precincts 1-8 plus Precinct 15 will meet at Epworth United Methodist Church in The Wolf Center. Precincts 9-14 plus Precincts 16-19 will meet at Churchill County Middle School in the Gymnasium. Caucus Day on February 22 is a much more involved process. Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. and will close at 12:00 p.m. Once all attendees are checked in, the Precinct Caucuses will be called to order shortly after 12 noon. Once you are checked in, you must stay in your precinct meeting until all caucus business is completed, and this process will take approximately another 2 hours. Please note that once you have checked in you cannot leave until the caucus is officially closed by the Precinct Chair. If you don't feel that you can spend 4-5 hours of your Saturday to attend on February 22nd, your best option is to Vote Early.
The Nevada State Democratic Party has been recruiting and training volunteers for several weeks to make sure that the Precinct Caucus runs as smoothly as possible. For more information check out the Nevada Dems website (https://nvdems.com/2020-caucus/).
Caucus Early Voting will be located at The Old Post Office - 90 N. Maine Street
