it is a
big week here in nevada for the 2016 presidential race as candidates prepare for the upcoming caucuses. and as kolo 8 news now's matt vaughan explains ... the democratic candidates seem to be facing an uphill battle when trying to contact voters in the silver state. part of the problem that's plauging both sanders and clinton's campaigns is that a lot of the critical voter data that they need is out of date. and that's mainly due to the fact that nevada was one of the hardest hit states during the recession ... leading to lots of foreclosed homes. ... in a recent article published by reuters ... they mention that sanders and clinton have both had their volunteers put in extra work tracking down personal information on voters here in the silver state. those files are crucial for candidates when it comes to campaign strategy. for example ... it can help identify weak areas where candidates need to build more support. but that's hard to do when a home has changed hands multiple times ... either from homeowner to homeowner or back and
nevada's foreclosure rate is higher than the national average ... according to realtytrac. and at one time las vegas had the highest number of foreclosures in the country. this has sent volunteers for clinton and sanders into overdrive. so if you've seen them going door to door a lot in the past few months ... it could be in part because of this saturday's caucus ... but there's also a good chance that they're making sure their voter information is up to date. and that could make all the difference when it comes to winning the state. we're just days away from the nevada caucuses. the democrats will caucus this saturday. followed by the republicans ... next tuesday. ### we've all experienced it.... ..an outspoken person on facebook, who's constantly sharing their political views. if you're less inclinded
