As you know, the GOP candidates are in Nevada trying to win the nomination for that state. There have been reports of ballot shortages which is always a good thing, especially when you have successful businessman Donald Trump waking the silent majority up to vote for the 2016 election.
Even with the influx of newly registered voters, there are no official reports of voting irregularities or violations which is even a more excellent result.

Early entrance polling showed that white voters made up less than 90% of the electorate for the first time in the GOP nominating contest.
White voters made up 86% of voters, according to early results, and Latino voters accounted for 8% of Republicans. By comparison, white voters made up 97% of the Republican electorate in Iowa and 96% in New Hampshire and South Carolina, according to polling there.
Though most are predicting low turnout, Trump’s allies see the uptick in Republican registrations here as a harbinger that could bode well for his candidacy — bringing out first time caucusgoers. (Unlike the Democratic caucuses here last Saturday, there is no same-day registration for Republican voters at caucus sites).
In Iowa, 65% said they made up their mind in the month before the caucuses and 35% said they decided earlier; in New Hampshire, the split was 70% to 30%. In South Carolina, 39% said they decided earlier in the contest, while 39% made up their mind in the “past few days” before the GOP primary last Saturday.
In interviews with dozens of Republican voters across the state over the last week, many said without hesitation that they were standing firmly with Trump and had given little thought to the other Republican candidates.
Here are entrance poll results:
We are still watching results and will update as we get the information.
