4:02 pm
caucus was due to start. some wearing their intentions literally on their sleeves, all determined to voice their choice. as the doors closed and temperatures rose it was determined to move precinct 5056, representing downtown residents outside. it began with a head count, then paper ballots were collected. a problem. the two counts didn't match. everything came to a halt as calls were made to the state party. the decision: hold a second head count. final result 61-46. bernie sanders over hillary clinton. pearce: "it brought out the passion on both sides." debbie: "it definitely did. people are passionare about politics and i think that's wonderful. and i think people passionate people." what's often missed in the numbers is that the caucus is really about electing delegates to the county convention. it turns out the dispute over the counts wouldn't have changed that outcome. in this precinct at least it was for clinton.
4:03 pm
race is that caucuses are really about electing delegates to the county convention as it turns out that disputed count wouldn't have changed that outcome. it was 6 sanders delegates to four for clinton. one other potential problem surfaced at this location. if you look up libby booth school on google maps, it lists a location on 9th street--actually the school district offices. the party apparently left signs there directing caucus goes to this location a mile or so away. whether it caused any actual confusion, isn't known. for many this was a first time caucus. that was the case for 17-year old jesse allison was able to participate because he will be 18 in november. kolo 8 news now terri russell introduced us to jesse yesterday. today, she followed him

warner elementary. he is a hillary clinton supporter, made calls and canvassed on her behalf. this morning he arrived at his precinct to be counted. "my name is jesse allison." 17 year old jesse allison signed in before noon today at his precinct at grace warner elementary school in northwest reno. easily one of the youngest in the crowd he sat next to fellow hillary supporters in the cafeteria. at noon, computers down, doors closed, and the caucuses began. after introductions, and a precinct chair was selected. residents were asked to move to two sides of the room, one for bernie, one for hillary. from the looks of it, there were
4:05 pm
a count was done more than once, to make sure. and then, with the help of math, delegates were awarded. sanders six, clinton 5. but for a disappointed jesse, his job was not done. jesse signs up to be a delegate to the county convention. jesse allison/17 year old: i think that would be really exciting. i thought the process went fine, i met people who were liked minded. whoever wins this afternoon, i will be voting democrat this fall. i think this is one of the most important things we can do, is vote for president. so jesse is on his way to the washoe county democratic convention as a delegate in april. who knows, could a state or national delegate post be in the offing? we will keep you posted. terri russell kolo 8 news now. thank you terri. at the university of caucus goers were also first time participants.
4:06 pm
rebecca kitchen is live from the university... and becca... sanders may have lost the state... but at your location and across much of northern nevada ... he seemed to be the clear winner. and i don't think it was a suprise to many people knowing this caucus was held on a college campus... but what was a suprise was how many people turned out... many precints started late becuase so many people were in line.... but over all the student's message was clear. nats...who's feeling the bern?.. wooo!! at the university of few scattered clinton supporters could be found... she's a standup person, and i give her a lot of credit for bill's success. but overall... nats.... bernie! bernie! bernie! bernie sander's was the students' choice. ... bring to an establishment candidate. she's been in the system for a long political machine. bernie sees a machine he wants to dismantle.
4:07 pm
revolution. i think his policies are going to make a difference also the fact that he's bringing in a lot of young people. so many young people in fact... the caucus started late and more rooms were added to accomodate everyone who came out it's fabulous. it's absolutely wonderful wer're alwasy talking about how we want to see young people involved and their the future. they're the one who have the greatest stake in who's elected to public office. in precint 5027... the majority of the people.... were students... and when it came time for the caucus to start....the winner was clear... only 19 stood behind clinton.. significantly less than the 32 need to make her a viable candidate. sanders supporters say he speaks to them because their views on social issues match their. his social plateform is the best thing i've every seen. it not only aligns with my views, but my friend's views. it's really progressive in every way. while hillary's social views are good, but not as strong.
4:08 pm
observers who say they expected this kind of support for sanders on a college campus. clinton supporters tell me though they have their own preference.. should sanders become the parties nominee... they will stand behind him. large turnout at the democratic caucus sites led to some problems both here in northern nevada and in las vegas. lines delayed the start locations. caucus sites were still trying to register would-be voters long past the scheduled at first, democratic party officials said the caucus would begin while people waited in line. a few minutes later, officials began to rush everyone inside-- saying they would register voters during the actual caucus. the overcrowding even pushed some precincts outside.
