Nevada GOP caucuses include unusual rules

Las Vegas -- Today's Republican caucuses in Nevada differ from primary elections by requiring voters to devote a block of time to make their preferences known in a process that takes more time than just filling out a ballot.

There are also some unusual rules set this year by the GOP officials in the state, including:

Timing: Republican Party officials in each county decide when to hold caucus meetings. In Clark County, home to Las Vegas and 70 percent of state residents, the meetings are at 9 a.m. today - a time that is inconvenient for the city's taxi drivers, waitresses and other service employees who work on weekends.

I thought that all those service workers were overwhelmingly unionized, at least within Las Vegas.

For context, Romney won NV with 51% in 2008, Ron Paul was second with less than 14%.
