Nevada Caucus Voting Goes Quickly At Some Sites

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Republicans made their caucus choices quickly and went home at some precincts where turnout was light, even before some of their party colleagues settled in at more crowded sites.

Late arrivals at one southeast Las Vegas high school with multiple precincts found balloting already completed in their groups by 10 a.m.

But some people were still able to submit ballots.

Some precincts had fewer than 10 voters.

At one northwest Las Vegas high school, a crowd peaked of more than 1,200 caucus-goers, then thinned to just a handful by 10:30 a.m.

Clark County caucus chief Tim Williams tells The Associated Press he’s fielding lots of telephone calls, but hasn’t heard complaints from caucus sites.

Williams also reports that turnout was light at some sites, and overflowing at others.
