Early Voters in Washoe County May Set Record

Posted: Updated:

Early voters in Washoe County are turning out in high numbers since the option to cast a ballot prior to the General Election began October 20.

"In just five days, we've had 38,834 ballots cast at the 22 early voting locations in our community," said Senior Deputy Registrar Luanne Cutler. "We're excited about the high turnout so far, and people still have until Friday, November 2 to vote early."

Cutler also said some polling locations will be closed this Friday, October 26, for Nevada Day, but the following will be open: Scolari's, Sak N Save, Reno Town Mall, Sun Valley Neighborhood Center, Reno/Sparks Association of Realtors, Shopper's Square and the Legends at Sparks Marina. All libraries utilized as polling locations will be closed for Nevada Day with the exception of the Spanish Springs library.

A complete list of polling locations and hours is available in voters' sample ballots and at
www.washoecounty.us/voters/12EVSchedule.htm. Cutler added she hopes the three-day weekend will allow more time for citizens to vote.

*Note: Spanish Springs Library will not be open Nevada Day as previously announced*
