Democratic 2020 hopefuls campaigned into the night on Friday on the eve of the Nevada caucuses.
The “first in the west” caucuses will begin at 10:00 a.m. local time on Saturday.
Almost 75,000 voters took advantage of the new early voting process, which allows voters to rank their top three candidates. Those results will then be sent to the voter’s precinct, allowing them to participate in their local caucus.
That number is significant as only 84,000 Nevadans caucused in 2016.
Here are some of the images from Nevada:

‘His incompetence will cost lives’: Joe Biden goes after Trump on coronavirus in new 2020 campaign ad
Former Vice President is continuing to campaign for president in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic hitting America.
On Saturday, Biden went after Trump on the issue of coronavirus testing.
"Where are the tests, Mr. President?" Biden asked.
Biden followed up with an online video warning that lives will be needlessly lost.
"His failure will cost lives," the video says. "His downplaying will cost lives. His incompetence will cost lives."
Joe Biden has one key coronavirus question he wants answered: ‘Where are the tests, Mr. President?’
Despite the inability to hold campaign rallies, the 2020 presidential campaign is continuing in spite of the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
With the response to coronavirus being the top public policy discussion in America, all eyes are focused on President Donald Trump's actions.
Trump had promised the nation that he would set up COVID-19 drive-thru testing sites in the parking lots of big-box retailers but has so far failed to deliver.
Trump’s chilling re-election calculus is to focus on economy instead of lives says former administration official: Report
Two top Washington Post journalists are out with a stunning story Saturday morning, an inside look at President Donald Trump's "risky push to reopen the country amid the coronavirus crisis."
Robert Costa and Philip Rucker took a deep dive into this week's developments, writing that "in private discussions, the president has been driven much more by economic concerns, according to people involved in internal debates or briefed on them. Trump has long viewed the stock market as a barometer for his own reelection hopes, and he has been distraught at the meltdown in recent weeks. He has been inundated with calls from business leaders, wealthy supporters and conservative allies urging him to get Americans back to work and stave off further calamity, even if doing so carries health risks."
