Republicans will be out on St. Patrick’s Day registering voters and urging them to check their registration prior to the primary election.
Nevada has closed primaries, which means candidates appearing on the ballot depends on the voter’s party.
Only nonpartisan candidates appear on everyone’s ballot, and those races are rare in the primary.
On Saturday, Douglas County Republicans held their biyearly precinct meeting and county convention at Valley Christian Fellowship.
“The event moved smoothly through its business in the morning electing representatives from all the county’s 41 precincts,” said Douglas County Central Committee Voter Registration Chairwoman Virginia Nisse said.
The meetings and convention were conducted by Sen. James Settelmeyer.
“Settelmeyer effortlessly moved the meeting through the business of passing motions, policies, planks, and resolutions, like a pro,” Nisse said.
The meeting wrapped up its business around 3:15 p.m. and was adjourned.
“As time permitted, there were state and local candidates for office that were allowed an opportunity to briefly speak regarding their campaigns,” she said. “Overall, it was an incredibly smooth efficient execution of the foundation of the Republican Platform.”
