Nevada Democrats are hoping to avoid a repeat of the chaos that ensnared the Iowa caucuses, as voters gather across the Silver State on Saturday to make their presidential preferences known.

They will still be relying to some extent on technology to assist in counting and reporting results, though, and like Iowa, they will have paper backups. (AP Photo/John Locher, File)
