Las Vegas, NV – With a coveted spot near the start of the Presidential primary season, Nevada will carry some weight in deciding the nominees. However, a recent survey suggests only a small percentage of the state's residents will wield that power. Barry Gold, director of government relations for the AARP in Nevada, worries that people may be paying attention to the candidates, but few say they plan to actually participate in the caucuses.

"There are people who are excited about the elections and plan to vote in the January 19 caucus. But many Nevadans don't seem to understand there is something beyond the buzz of the candidates coming to visit, and going to the events."

Such a small number of voters have identified themselves as probable caucus-goers that AARP has postponed its plans to update a survey of constituent attitudes. Gold insists it isn't case of apathy, because he says it's clear Nevadans are tracking the issues. Instead, he attributes the low numbers to an early caucus and voters who don't stay in one place for long.

"Nevadans are such a transient population. People are coming and going and they weren't aware of it, didn't know about it, or didn't understand the significance of it being held so early. But early caucuses really give us an opportunity to have the eyes of America on us and really make a difference with the election."

More than 900 people turned out for Caucus Awareness events in Nevada in October, and additional events are planned for the Silver State as part of the AARP's "Divided We Fail" campaign.
