Thurston County only precinct to host democratic caucus on Native American reservation


Thurston County in Nebraska was one of the last sites to host its democratic caucus. There were a total of 93 active locations within the state, but Thurston's site was one of a kind compared to the rest.

"I'm very pleased that Nebraska Democratic Party and even the folks in Thurston County saw fit to put the caucus on the Winnebago Indian reservation," says Thurston County caucus chairman Frank LaMere.

Out of the 93 democratic caucus locations in the state of Nebraska, only one was hosted on a Native American reservation. LaMere says it's an added bonus to be able to exercise one's civic duty and bring the community closer together.
