LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

With the Nevada Democratic Caucus Saturday, volunteers for presidential hopefuls are working around the clock to get people out and caucusing.

"This is probably my sixth or seventh day volunteering in a row, and I will be here every day until the caucus," volunteer Ben Barber said.

Volunteer Minh Nguyen said he is following presidential candidates from state to state.

"I actually came from New Hampshire, I was a volunteer there, and I wanted to help out for a last push here in Nevada," Nguyen said.  

Nguyen is planning on pulling 12 hour days until Saturday, knocking on doors, making phone calls, and answering questions.

"For example a lot of people don't know that if you’re a republican, you can register the same day of, you can register the same day as the democratic caucus," Nguyen said.

Volunteers from Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are talking to people about their candidates policies, but they are also making sure people know where to go on Saturday at 11 a.m. and how to get there.

"Let them know where they're caucusing, ask them how they’re getting there, if they need a ride, we will definitely provide a system to get them there," volunteer Natalie Montelongo said.

As the countdown to caucus continues, the campaigns are garnering all the support they can get.

"It doesn’t take one person, it takes a community to make it happen, so thank you so much for your help, let’s get them there," volunteer Olivia Diaz said.

Volunteers said don’t be surprised if you are asked in the next few days if you’re planning to caucus.

Caucus locations are posted on Bernie Sanders’ and Hillary Clinton’s websites. The campaigns will be providing transportation through neighborhood leaders for those who reach out and ask.
