Once the first vote totals are counted, supporters of the viable candidates will make speeches and try to woo the supporters of the candidates who didn't make the cut to join them.

Organizers will then make a 2nd and final count of all votes, again including early votes.

The vote totals will determine how many delegates a candidate has earned.

Early votes will be routed to the voter's home precinct on caucus day so that they can be counted alongside their neighbors. Each site will submit its results to party officials. They will then announced the results.

WHEN WILL WE KNOW THE RESULTS?
NV Dems says it should start getting precinct-level data within an hour of the call to caucus.

HOW MANY DELEGATES DOES NEVADA HAVE?
Nevada has a total of 48 national delegates, 36 of whom will be pledged to specific candidates based on the results of the caucuses.

WHAT ARE SUPERDELEGATES?
The remaining 12 delegates -- also known as super delegates -- are chosen based on their positions, including members of Congress and the governor.

Unlike the previous election though, these delegates will not participate in voting at the national convention if a candidate has earned the 1,991 pledged delegates needed to secure the nomination outright.

If no one reaches that threshold, a 2nd ballot could be needed and that's when superdelegates would participate.
