Nevada's Clark County GOP To Hold Special 'After Sabbath' Caucus


(system) #1

The Clark County Republican Party, which includes Las Vegas, where the vast majority of Nevadans will caucus in the GOP primary, has announced that it will accomodate Sabbatarians who want to join the presidential political process on Saturday, Feb. 4. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

The decision means the final results of the GOP caucus in Nevada's largest county won't be released until after the post-sundown meeting is over, delaying the news about who won the Silver State.

Most Clark County Republicans will caucus starting at 9 a.m., probably finishing the meetings within a few hours after voting for their presidential favorites and electing delegates to the county convention. The presidential poll will determine who won the most support and delegates.

The after-sundown caucus is scheduled to open its doors at 6 p.m. to register Jews, Seventh-day Adventists and others whose religion prevents them from meeting during the day. The caucus will start at 7 p.m., allowing participants to vote for their presidential preference but not elect delegates.
