Caucus pledges are non-binding. This means you can change your delegate pledge up to the time of the convention. All delegates and alternates will be given a form at the final check-in to the convention to sign confirming or changing the candidate to which they are pledged for the purpose of first alignment of delegates at the convention. 

ALL ONLINE TICKET SALES WILL END 6 am on March 28th - If you do not order tickets before that date you will need to stand in line at the convention to register manually. 

Payment is accepted online via Visa or Mastercard. If you do not wish to pay online tickets may be ordered will-call and picked up from the will-call line at the convention. 

Alternates elected at their precinct caucuses shall be seated first as permanent delegates and voting members based on the order of their in-person sign in time for the convention and presidential preference.

Alternates not elected at their precinct caucuses shall then be seated as permanent delegates and voting members based on the order of their in-person sign in time for the convention and presidential preference.

You are not required to pay for a ticket to the convention. The costs of presenting the convention are paid for by the Clark County Democratic party and not by candidates. The modest fee is to offset these costs and any additional funds received in excess of these costs (if any) are used to support voter registration efforts in Clark County Nevada.

If you are unable to afford the cost of the ticket please use the discount code provided by the candidate you have pledged to support. The Clark County Democratic party will ask those candidates to please assist in offsetting the costs of supporters attending the convention who were unable to pay. 

It’s critical that our party’s platform reflects our commitment to keep America moving forward. The platform resolution process is your chance to shape the values of the Democratic Party. It’s an opportunity for you and fellow Democrats to voice your thoughts on what issues and policies our party should fight for in 2016.

Any attendee may submit a platform resolution proposal at your precinct caucus on February 20, 2016. The form will be available for completion at all caucus locations, and in advance. Forms will be collected following the completion of presidential preference delegate elections and any county party business.

Download your platform resolution proposal form.

Platform Resolution Proposals

  1. The Caucus Precinct Chair will make the following announcement: “At this time, I would like to make available resolution forms and collect resolution forms to be submitted to the County Democratic Party.”
  2. The Precinct Chair will then make a last call for resolutions forms and continue with the agenda.
  3. Resolutions will be submitted in an envelope to the Nevada State Democratic Party to then be forwarded to the County Party for their county convention.

Next Steps

  1. The Nevada State Democratic Party will tally the number of resolutions submitted and the number of precincts where a particular resolution was submitted on Caucus Day.
  2. Resolutions are considered at each county convention by their platform committees.
  3. The county parties will then submit their approved platforms to the State Platform Committee for consideration in the Nevada State Democratic Party’s platform.



What are the rules as to how delegates are selected?

This process is outlined in the Nevada State Democratic Party delegate selection plan:

Any caucus participant may stand for election as a delegate. Anyone who wants to be elected a national delegate must participate in the precinct caucuses, and each subsequent event in the process – your county convention on April 2, the state convention on May 14 and 15, and the Democratic National Convention on July 25-28 in Philadelphia, PA.

How do I know if I am a delegate or an alternate to the convention?

All delegates were selected for election at your caucus meeting. If you ran for election as a delegate and won at your caucus meeting, and you were given a delegate selection receipt you are a delegate. The party will use its best efforts to verify all delegates from the copies of records provided. If you have any doubt regarding your status check with us before the convention.  On the day of the convention we may rely solely on verifying delegate selection receipts. 

Alternates were elected in the same process as delegates, you should also have a receipt. If you do not have one please contact us at least 10 days before the convention. Again, the ability to research this information on the day of the convention will be greatly limited. 

If you did not attend the caucus, or were not elected as either a delegate or alternate, you may register as a stand-by alternate to serve as a delegate to the county convention.  These alternates are seated as delegates AFTER placement of all alternates that attended the caucus. There is no guarantee that any of these positions will be available as it depends on turn-out for the day of the convention. Note that if you DID NOT attend the caucus you are not eligible for election to the National Convention. 

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

To participate as a delegate or alternate in the convention you must be 18 years old as of the next general election in November 2016. This means the minimum age can be as low as 17 years old if their birthday to turn 18 is by the next election. 

Due to the size of the event please use your best judgement when bringing children. Due to limited space there will not be any child specific activities, and this event may be very loud. However as Democrats we encourage families to use their discretion to determine the way you wish to have your children participate. Please note that children may not participate in any voice vote of the convention. 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Paid parking will be available at the Cashman Center which is usually about $5. 

RTC runs to the Cashman center vicinity. Please visit to plan your trip via public transportation. 

What can/can't I bring to the event?

You can bring your enthusiasm for the candidates you support. You may bring your campaign swag, shirts, and signs. 

Please leave at home all weapons, hate speech, alcohol, and items for resale. These items at the convention are strictly phohibited and will result in immediate dismissal from the event. 

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Your registration and ticket are NOT transferrable to another party. You are elected as either a delegate, or alternate tied to your individual name. If you are unable to attend your ticket may not be transferred. 

Can I update my registration information?

You can update your registration information by logging in up until 7 days before the convention. You cannot change your presidential preference until you arrive at the convention after your initial ticket purchase. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

YES! The fastest way to get through the check-in line will be to bring your PRINTED ticket to the convention. If you do not bring your printed ticket to the convention you will need to wait in line to have it printed. All printable tickets will be released online via email after full verification of delegates 7 days before the convention. 

How long will I wait in line?

This depends on if you have pre-registered for the convention. If you have pre-registered and have your printed ticket the process for check-in will be to have the ticket scanned, a verification emblem (hologram sticker) placed on the ticket, and you will sign for your presidential preference at the bottom of the form. We will cut off the strip with your presidential preference and you will then enter the convention. 

The size of the lines directly depends on the number of volunteers for the convention. However top priority for check-in will be the pre-printed tickets. 

How do I volunteer for the convention, what assistance do you need?

We need volunteers for check-in, set-up, and general information.  Please sign up with a volunteer ticket or email 

ALL ONLINE TICKET SALES WILL END 6 am on March 28th - If you do not order tickets before that date you will need to stand in line at the convention to register manually.
