Presidential Caucuses

Pursuant to Nevada law, Nevada does not conduct Primary Elections to select Presidential candidates. Instead, major political parties hold caucuses. The City of Henderson is not involved in the conduct of caucuses and you should contact the Democratic or Republican party for information. The political parties determine the dates of the caucuses and deadlines by which to be registered to attend. The tentative caucus dates are below. However, you should directly contact your party to confirm this, as these dates may be subject to change.

  • Democratic Caucus: Saturday, February 20, 2016
  • Republican Caucus: Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Initiatives & Referenda

Initiatives and referenda are processes that allow Nevada citizens to utilize a petition circulation process to propose new legislation, amend the Nevada Constitution or existing state statutes or approve or disapprove of existing laws. They are both methods of involving voters directly in the legislative process of government.
