National Democrats approve early caucus voting for Nevada

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Democratic National Committee has approved a plan by Nevada Democrats to offer the first-ever early voting option for presidential caucuses, a change stemming from a push to make the in-person presidential nominating meetings more accessible.

State party chairman William McCurdy II and DNC Chairman Tom Perez plan to announce the approval in a Monday conference call. The DNC signed off on the plan earlier this month.

The plan calls for releasing raw vote totals from the caucus, offering caucus materials in Tagalog for the state’s growing Filipino population and having caucus workers use an app instead of paper to record and transmit results to party officials.
