'Chaos time': Reports on the ground suggest confusion at Nevada caucuses

GOP Primary Heads to Nevada

There seems to be some chaos in Nevada as the Republican caucuses get underway.

Reports from the ground suggest that there's a lot of confusion at certain caucus sites.

Candidates who have dropped out of the race for their party's presidential nomination are still listed on some ballots, some sites are running out of ballot, and some people are being kept waiting in long lines.

'Chaos time': Reports on the ground suggest confusion at Nevada caucuses
Check this out from @elainaplott -- it's chaos time. https://t.co/S6h0fDJ8OU
Ballots are being collected at a rapid pace. Jeb Bush is still on it. #nvgopcaucus https://t.co/m3QdQmOgJG
GOP volunteer working Sun Valley location said he was expecting maybe 100 people. Turnout has far exceeded that here.
Even though things moving very smoothly here, voters muttering under their breath: What a mess; This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
Only in NV would they have Santorum, Carly, Bush, Christie, Huck and Paul on there. What buffoons. Did they not want to refund their fees?
I don't know of any org less prepared to deal with unusually high turnout than NV GOP. Also, no org less equipped to deal w/low turnout.
Report from Wooster HS: "It's about to get ugly here." How so? "Yelling, swearing, disorganized. People are pissed."
It is chaos here at Palo Verde HS. No one knows where their precinct is, tons of people streaming in. #Nevadacaucus
Man here says "it's a disaster." No one is checking in or checking IDs. They're handing out ballots willy nilly. Some guy voted trump twice
Second woman says no one checked her ID. She was just handed a ballot. She says it's very scary. #Nevadacaucus https://t.co/VqxrOianFj

Real-estate mogul Donald Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich are all competing in Nevada.

Turnout seems to be higher than expected, and some caucus sites appear unprepared.
