LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada Democrats are planning caucus sites at six Las Vegas Strip casinos to accommodate voters who work on caucus day.

The party announced shift workers can weigh in on their favorite Democratic presidential candidate at the New York-New York, Caesars Palace, Rio, Paris, Harrah’s and Wynn Resort. Caucuses take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 20.

Voters hoping to use the Strip caucus sites instead of the site in their neighborhood have to declare they work nearby and can’t make it home because of their shift.

The Strip voting sites are part of a broader effort to ramp up caucus participation. The state party is also launching Facebook ads raising the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency and Planned Parenthood cuts as reasons for Democrats to participate this year.
