In Nevada, Latino groups such as Mi Familia Vota are holding voter registration drives and Spanish-language caucus training initiatives.

"There is this targeted effort to inform the community that this is a part of the process," said NBC Latino senior reporter Suzanne Gamboa, who is in Las Vegas covering the upcoming caucuses in a state with a substantial Latino electorate - in fact 17 percent of eligible voters are Hispanic.

"That this is where they can also make their voice known and they can be in on the aciton very early. The training does seem to be getting some reception," observed Gamboa, who joined MSNBC's Changing America panel to discuss voter registration and highlight the upcoming Nevada Democratic primary.

The campaigns of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have been aggressively courting prospective Latino voters ahead of the party's Nevada caucus on Saturday, Feb. 20.
