Nevada Democrats are cheering the high turnout in the first two days of early voting of their state’s Democratic presidential caucuses, hoping that the strong participation will translate to enthusiasm for beating President Donald Trump in November.
The Nevada Democratic Party reported that over 11,800 voted on Saturday, the first of four days of early voting, leading up to the official caucus date of Saturday, February 22. To put that number in perspective, about 84,000 total Nevada Democrats caucused in 2016.
NEW: Nevada Democrats release turnout numbers as of 5 p.m. 11,800 people! In one day of early vote! (About 84,000 people total participated in the caucus in 2016, for context.) https://t.co/IgrWdQH1lL
