Cell phones play important role in Nevada caucus

Posted at 11:30 PM, Feb 23, 2016

For the first time ever, cell phones played a very important roll in the Nevada caucus.

Precinct captains are in charge of counting the votes at each location. The captain writes the results down on a piece of paper and then takes a photo of the results with his or her cell phone.

The captain then sends the photo to the GOP chair.

Last time, it took 2 days to tally the votes correctly. Hopefully, using cell phones will speed up the process this time.

Most of the five candidates still in the race have been in the Las Vegas area and other parts of the states for the last few days trying to rally supporters.

Candidates then hope that their supporters will help sway other voters during the actual caucus.
