NV Dems, Young Dems Host Caucus Trainings for College Students in Reno and Las Vegas


by Nevada Democrats

This week, NV Dems hosted constituency-focused caucus trainings on college campuses in Reno and Las Vegas. Trainings focused on educating attendees on the caucus process, recruiting volunteers, and hearing from students as we head into our First in the West Caucus in less than a month. 

“Young voters are driving our country forward on critical issues like Climate Change, gun violence prevention, immigration, and student loan debt,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II. “In 2018, Nevada saw an increase in turnout among teenage voters higher than the national average and we’re working to engage and turnout young voters again in 2020. From trainings and mock caucuses with our Young Dems to early vote and Caucus Day locations on campuses across the state, we’re working hard to ensure voices of all ages are heard in our First in the West Caucus.”

In less than 20 days, Nevada will become the first and only caucus state to offer early voting. With locations at the University of Nevada-Reno, University of Nevada-Las Vegas, Truckee Meadows Community College, and all three main campuses of the College of Southern Nevada, NV Dems is committed to ensuring students across our state have access to this historic caucus. A complete list of early vote and Caucus Day locations can be found at caucus.nvdems.com.

These trainings were two in a series of varying constituency-focused trainings in which NV Dems work to encourage participation across every community. NV Dems previously held and assisted with trainings in the rural, LGBTQ+, AAPI, Native American, and Latinx communities.
