Learning from the Iowa Caucus fiasco, the Nevada Democratic Party leaders, who had adopted the same IT system as Iowa but dropped it as soon as it failed in the Hawkeye State, yesterday announced their new counting and reporting procedure. Using iPads and other common technical devices and communication options, the Nevada Democrats look to be better prepared for all contingencies.
Their system, however, is just as potentially confusing as Iowa’s because they, too, are going to allow re-voting for people who support a candidate not making the 15% delegate apportionment cut. With early voting occurring from tomorrow through Monday in anticipation of the February 22nd caucus voting day, individuals will register their first choice and then have the option of ranking as many as four other candidates should their original choices fail to reach 15% of the popular vote. The system appears to have some of the same potential flaws that made the Iowa result extremely close and convoluted. That being the case, the eventual Nevada tally may also end in clouded fashion.
