The Nevada Democratic Party has vowed “to have the most accessible, most expansive and transparent caucus” in state history following the chaotic Iowa Democratic caucus, a spokesperson for the party told CNN on Tuesday.
“From the beginning, we’ve developed a very robust training program” for precinct captains, said Molly Forgey, party communications director, “one that has encouraged every single community to turnout, we have had bilingual trainings, we have training materials in all three languages: English, Spanish and Tagalog. We’ve made sure that our folks understand not just how to run their caucus as a precinct captain, but have the foundational knowledge of running a caucus if they’re new to the process, or if they’re a veteran volunteer.”
She added that the party is “doing training around the clock, every day until election day,” with one-on-one and in-person training.
“We’ve had our heads down, working around the clock the last three weeks and we feel very good, very confident. We know we’re going to have the most accessible, most expansive and transparent caucus in Nevada history.”
When Forgey was asked about whether the results of the caucus will be made public by the end of the night on Saturday, she said, “we understand everyone wants to know the outcome of the Nevada caucus because we play such a crucial role in this primary as the first diverse state to make its voice heard. So that’s our priority right now.”
