Douglas democrats meet March 12 at campus

Staff reports

All registered Democrats in Douglas County are invited to mass precinct meetings and presidential preference caucuses on Sunday, March 12, from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Western Nevada Community College Douglas campus in Minden.

This is the only chance that Democrats will have to vote their preference among Democratic candidates for President, said Gail Turle. All 33 precincts in Douglas County participate, including Lake Tahoe, Topaz Lake and the Carson Valley.

Western Nevada Community College, Douglas, is located at 1680 Bently Parkway South, off Buckeye Road, east of Highway 395, in Minden.

“This is a perfect opportunity for local Democrats to become involved in the party on every level: local, state, and national,” said Turle.

At this meeting, precinct members can nominate themselves or others to participate in the county convention. Participants will vote their presidential preference, which is Nevada’s equivalent to the primary elections being held in other states.

After participation at this level, voters may go the April 15 county convention at the WNCC Douglas campus to qualify to represent the county on the state level and may even qualify to participate in the national convention.

All 33 precincts in Douglas County will participate, including those at Lake Tahoe, Topaz Lake and the Carson Valley. Although residents in Jacks Valley and Indian Hills have Carson City post office addresses, they are Douglas County voters. Democrats will have precinct meetings and presidential preference caucuses on the same day, March 12, all across Nevada. There are an estimated 7,000 registered Democrat voters in Douglas County.

For more information about the precinct meeting, or becoming involved in the Democratic Central Committee of Douglas County, contact Turle, at 749-5366 or Evan Beavers, 782-5110.
