Early Voting Ends Friday

Posted: Updated:

Half of active Nevada voters have already cast ballots during early voting in advance of Tuesday's general election.

The secretary of state's office says nearly 627,000 voters -- or 50% of active voters -- have cast ballots, with one day of early voting left. Friday is the last day to vote early. After that, voters will have to go to specified polling locations on Tuesday.

Democrats statewide lead Republicans by 41,000 in the number of ballots cast, either in person or by mail. Of those who have voted in person, about 44% were Democrats, compared with 36% registered as Republican.

But Republicans have outpaced Democrats in absentee voting by about a 4 percentage point margin.

Democrats hold a 90,000 voter registration advantage statewide.

After the November 2 deadline, all qualified voters who wish to cast a ballot for the November 6 General Election will have to do so on Election Day between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. at their assigned polling place.

Any voter who is unsure of their voting eligibility or where they are assigned to vote on Election Day can visit
www.washoecounty.us/voters and on the appropriate lines enter their last name and date-of-birth to confirm their voting eligibility, get their precinct number and assigned Election Day polling place information, and see a map showing where their polling place is located in relation to their residence.

Voters who have requested an absentee ballot, voted that ballot and sent it back to the Registrar of Voters (ROV) office can get information verifying the date their voted ballot was received. If a voter does not have access to online services, they may call the ROV office at (775) 328-3670.

A complete list of polling locations and hours is available in voters' sample ballots and at
www.washoecounty.us/voters/12EVSchedule.htm.
