CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada lawmakers have killed a measure that would have changed the state’s presidential caucus to a primary election.

Assembly members never brought SB421 up for a vote Monday night, meaning the measure failed to meet the final legislative deadline.

The bill would have allowed national political party heads to request that Nevada’s current caucus system for selecting a presidential candidate be changed to a primary election. Supporters said the change would have increased voter turnout and avoid a confusing caucus process.

The bill would have created a one-day primary election without early voting, instead of the state’s current presidential caucus system.

The measure passed out of the Senate on an 11-9 vote in May, but never received a vote in the Assembly before the session ended.
