What Some Nevada Caucus Poll Workers Are Wearing Is Causing an Uproar


Poll workers at the Nevada caucuses are wearing Donald Trump campaign gear while working, causing unease and skepticism of a fair vote.

At Durango High School in Las Vegas, caucus workers wearing Trump campaign apparel and stickers were photographed by Independent Journal Review.

The workers, who said they are wearing the clothing out of choice, claim to be volunteers.

The reports out of Las Vegas's Durango High School are among several reports of "intimidation" by Trump supporters on caucus night in the Silver State.

The National Review's Elaina Plott has been live tweeting a series of quotes from sources on the ground at a separate location in Nevada detailing similar situations.

A GOP source told Independent Journal Review "there is no rule against volunteers wearing campaign paraphernalia."

Whether the widespread reports of poll workers wearing campaign gear will have any effect on the caucus results is yet to be seen, but it is certainly making many caucus-goers uneasy.

UPDATE: Poll workers wearing stickers in support of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
