Democratic pedestrian precinct chairs and volunteers in Nevada are at an early stage their concerns about a number of unresolved issues with which the party caucus process in the Wake of the debacle, the short over a week ago in Iowa.

Of a new “tool” is used to ask about the results of the early voters, as the districts are the results nationwide, the democratic caucus counts workers say, the Nevada State Democratic party, she left with more questions than answers in the lead-up to Feb. 22 votes.

“All the state has said to us,” don’t worry, we’ll get it figured out,'” Seth Morrison, a Website, the leader, the supervision of six districts in the Legacy High School in North Las Vegas, told Fox News. “That seems like a recipe for disaster.”


Morrison, who is the first caucus workers spoke publicly of his fears about the state of the group, stressed the three main causes for concern, he said, need to be resolved before the Nevada election day: as the paper ballots from the early voting will be recorded and assessed to districts on how and when this data will be sent, and how to get the final results of the walls considered, with a country-wide result?

“I’m scared about this,” he said. “The party is really between a rock and a hard place, especially after Iowa.”


In the follow-up to the Iowa caucus – where a coding-era on a app for recording the results was in part to blame for a still uncertain degree in the Democratic race officials at the Nevada State Democratic party said they were eliminating the use of two apps developed by political technology company, Shadow Inc. have been used in Iowa as well as the use of another app’s caucus record results.

“NV Dems can confidently say that what happens in Iowa [on Feb. 3] will not happen in the state of Nevada on February 22,” Nevada State Democratic party Chairman William McCurdy II, said in a statement released last week. “We don’t use the same app or the manufacturer to be used in the Iowa caucus. We had already developed a number of backups and redundant reporting systems, and assessment are currently the best way in the future.”


The Former Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., also weighed in on the matter, has said in a tweet that he is “not 100% sure that what happened will not happen in Iowa, in Nevada.”

The state, the democratic party did not return Fox News ” request for comment and is a public or voluntary — to disclose what software it is planning to use to capture footage caucus results.

“The answer is that a party official told me my face was, ‘If I told you who developed it, we would be hacked,” said Morrison.

According to a video of a volunteer training last weekend, that was, the by the Nevada Independent party, the party is planning a “tool” that is preloaded to help iPads, and group chairs to record the results.

“We have very little information. It was only a preview. It was not a hands-on,” a volunteer, who requested anonymity, said the Nevada Independent. “We were not given, to work the program with or practice with. Everything that we have been viewing a few slides while you told us that you plan to continue to develop.”

In the video of the session, a democratic staffer told the volunteers that the tool “flow of your pedestrian early votes the data so that the information for your district caucus, so that when you do your economic calculations, you will be able to count the number of people who have voted early and then, if the results of your first alignment, you are able to key in this early vote information, so that you every piece of information you need, to run your precinct caucus.”


The employee, but would not say how the results – either those covers from the early votes, or the final itself – to transfer from one place to another.

“These are all excellent questions, and we are still working some of the details to this, so I’ll be sure to share that everyone has more information than we are capable of it,” the employee said.


Morrison said the group of workers have no updates for all of your questions there on the Saturday of the meeting.

“We don’t know how the caucus captains to get the early votes,” he said. “The party has refused to tell us how these data are collected…the only answer is that it is given to us that they are still developing.”

Unlike in Iowa, caucus-goers in Nevada, their votes, and can skip out on attending the actual conference. These votes will then be tallied and the totals after the first alignment and to display the candidates to remain viable, to the second orientation, and, ultimately, who will win, is the pedestrian zone.


An error-free caucus in Nevada is help is of vital importance not only for the democratic party to save face after the fiasco in Iowa, but also in the ultimately, to decide which candidates go on to face President trump in the November General election.

Given Iowa caucus and the narrow results convoluted by the Tuesday, the New Hampshire primary, not a single Democrat has a clear frontrunner in the race, and Nevada is much more racially diverse make-up of the results of the silver state power is a better indicator of who is ultimately the nomination as the previous two-state ” competitions.


Nevada has also acted historically as a tiebreaker among the Democratic presidential candidates. In 2008, Nevada the decision, the state was, after Barack Obama won Iowa, and Hillary Clinton beat him in New Hampshire, and in the year 2016, the state was an extra round after winning Clinton Iowa, and Bernie Sanders took to New Hampshire. In both cases, the eventual democratic candidate, the state ‘ s won, group.

The state is also a relatively new addition as an early vote, jumped ahead of Super Tuesday voting in 2008, when it moved from a primary to a group, but Seth is afraid that, if there is any emergency on Feb. 22, the state could lose, that the early-voting status.

As for the object of the caucus process, he is not so worried.

“Whether or not it is a problem, both parties need to “outlaw” the Caucasus,” he said. “You are out of date story.”
