Campaign aides tells CBS News there is a lack of volunteers to oversee Nevada caucus results in several locations. @EdOKeefe says it's an example of "disorganization and potential chaos" that some campaigns might stoke to "question the validity" of results https://t.co/4xhlHorGDS pic.twitter.com/ceXiklm6Vw

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada caucuses are off to a shaky start as the state Democratic Party says it’s short on volunteers to help run the third nominating contest of the 2020 cycle.
Representatives from multiple campaigns told the Washington Examiner that a number of Silver State caucus sites do not have enough volunteers, and local party officials are scrambling to find replacements. Other reports from the state show that some caucus sites don’t have registrations or early ballots yet.
“Nevada Democratic Party officials are telling us and other campaigns that there’s a deficit of volunteers across the state, and so they are asking representatives of campaigns to act as precinct chairs — which only underscores the poor preparations for these caucuses,” said an official from one Democratic campaign.
