The only technology that will be used is in the voter check-in process. Volunteers will use iPads to check in early voters who will then fill out their paper ballots, which will be turned in and scanned as usual.
「Each voter will be given a card with the voter registration ID number and a PIN, both of which the voter will enter when checking in online via a Google form,」 the Associated Press reports.
Nevada’s caucus takes place on Saturday, February 22, but early voting takes place from February 15 to 18.
Digital Trends reached out to the Nevada Democratic Party to find out if any technology will be used on the actual voting day of February 22, as well as what precautions they are taking to make sure it goes smoothly. We will update this story when we hear back.
Technology was to blame for the fiasco that was the Democratic Iowa caucus last week, which delayed results by more than 15 hours.
Caucus workers reported that they couldn’t get the app to work and that some workers even initially forgot to download the app ahead of time. Iowa Democratic Party chair Troy Price later said that the app’s issue had to do with coding. The results of the Iowa caucuses are still in dispute.
