As the calendar gets ready to flip to February and the remaining Republican presidential candidates move on from the early nominating states of Iowa and New Hampshire, it’s Nevada — not South Carolina — that’s next on the schedule.

Former President Donald J. Trump will campaign in Las Vegas on Saturday, while Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, has so far ignored the state. In a confusing and complicated process, the two candidates will not appear on the same ballot in Nevada.

Here’s what you need to know about Nevada’s upcoming nominating contests.

The Nevada primary, which the state is running, will be on Tuesday, Feb. 6. Early in-person voting begins on Saturday, Jan. 27, and runs through Friday, Feb. 2, according to the Nevada secretary of state’s office. In-person polling places will be open the day of the primary as well, though voters can choose to vote by mail. All registered voters received a ballot in the mail.

Meantime, the Nevada Republican Party has chosen to hold a party-run caucus on Thursday, Feb. 8, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Republicans can look up their precinct locations online, but the caucus itself is entirely in-person. A valid government I.D. is required to vote.

Nevada has held a caucus for decades. But in 2021, the state passed a law replacing the caucus with a primary, in large part because of flaws in the reporting process for the 2020 Democratic caucus.
