Registrar's Office Makes Changes Ahead Of Election Day

Posted: Updated:

With more than 10,000 more people registered to vote this election than in 2008, the Washoe Country Registrar's Office is making some changes to accommodate all the voters.

"Now it's more of a single point of entry, if you will, into the polling place where the voters are checked in and moved along quickly to the roster station and then to the voting machines," said the Senior Deputy Registrar for Washoe County.

Joann Cutler said in the past, voters had to show up to a particular table at a polling location for each precinct.

Instead of the station-to-station idea, Cutler said it's all been combined, which she said, is a better process.

Because of some of the changes, they have cut down on the number of polling locations and poll workers this time around.

Cutler said if you do plan on voting on Election Day, the best time to show up is mid-afternoon, between about 1 to 3pm, when the lines are typically the shortest.

The polls will be open from 7am until 7pm.

Also, before you head to the poll, make sure you go through your sample ballot.

"It has some instructional pieces to it, but more importantly, it has the ballot questions. As we all know, those can be somewhat confusing sometimes. So, reading those explanations over before going to the polls can really be helpful and assist with you making your choice a little quicker."

Early voting turnout could be a key factor in deciding the presidential and U.S. Senate contests in battleground Nevada.

The entire interview will air on Face the State this Saturday on Channel 2 News at 4:30am and 4:30pm. It also airs Sunday at 6:30am.
