2016 US elections

Editor's note: Nevada Democrats are kicking off 2016 primary voting for the West Coast today when they gather to caucus. They’ll meet in more than 200 schools, community centers and places of worship throughout the state’s roughly 1,700 precincts – and 6 caucus sites will be held at Las Vegas Strip casinos so housekeepers, blackjack dealers and others with weekend schedules can attend, according to the AP. And just like in Iowa, Democrats gather in groups divided by candidates and fight to get at least 15% of all people present (kind of like picking teams in gym class). The “team” with the most people wins. Twenty-three of the state’s 43 delegates are at stake today; 8 party leaders and elected officials are “superdelegates” and can vote how they choose, while 12 more are delegates “at large” and will be decided at the state convention. Voting begins at 11 a.m. PT (2 p.m. ET). We’ll be following the race all day, so be sure to keep checking in for the latest updates. - Shelley
