There are growing concerns that the Feb. 22 Nevada caucuses could be a repeat of the chaos that hit Iowa's caucus process earlier this month, AP reports.

What's happening: Election volunteers in the state have yet to receive training for the iPads they will use on caucus day — or specific details about what the process' electronic "Caucus Tool" is and how it will ultimately be used.

  • Nevada was going to originally use the same app used in Iowa but has since scrapped those plans. Organizers told the AP that state party officials emphasized that the "Caucus Tool" is not an app, but did not explain how it was different.
  • Compounding matters, Nevada will offer early voting in its multi-stage caucus process — which Iowa didn't attempt.

The big picture, via Axios' Stef Kight: Wyoming is the only other state that will hold a traditional caucus this year — on April 4.

The bottom line: Concerns over election security and confidence in electoral results have only grown since Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, as the AP writes, "Iowa’s problems demonstrated that it doesn’t take a foreign government to cause chaos."

When MLB teams arrived at the ballpark this weekend for the first summer workouts of 2020, the comforting sounds of baseball brought smiles to players' faces.

Between the lines: Even the loudest crack of the bat couldn't mask the eerie silence or distract from the ever-present coronavirus threat.

A group of 239 scientists in 32 countries is calling for the World Health Organization to revise its recommendations to account for airborne transmission as a significant factor in how the coronavirus spreads, the New York Times reports.

The big picture: The WHO has said the virus mainly spreads via large respiratory droplets that fall to the ground once they've been discharged in coughs and sneezes. But the scientists say evidence shows the virus can spread from smaller particles that linger in air indoors.
