Can we hope for less caucus chaos this time around? After the Iowa caucus debacle earlier this month, it’s Nevada voters’ turn to caucus — the third state after Iowa and New Hampshire to vote in the presidential primary election. The Nevada caucuses take place on Saturday, Feb. 22. Voters will begin caucusing at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET), and there is no scheduled closing time.
State officials have ditched the election app that failed in Iowa in favor of iPads preloaded with a caucus calculator by way of Google Docs. Will we get results by the end of the night? You’ll need to tune in to find out, and it may go past your bedtime. Caucus workers and volunteers have been told: Don’t make early dinner plans. Here’s how you can watch the Nevada caucus results and candidate speeches as they happen — live, for free and without cable.
How to watch Nevada caucus results
You can watch live coverage of the Nevada caucus throughout the day on Saturday on the CBS News website or CBS News app. You can watch the CBS News livestream for free without authentication, which means you won’t have to sign in at all, just start streaming. (Disclosure: ViacomCBS is the parent company of CNET.)
You can also watch for free online at C-SPAN starting at 3 p.m. PT on Saturday.
