The Washoe County Registrar of Voters says more than 20,000 residents have so far early voted in the primary election since early voting began on May 26th.

Early voting runs through Friday and primary is on Tuesday.

Voters will pick candidates in races for U.S. Senate, the state's four U.S. House seats, governor, attorney general and a number of other state and local races.

Election officials in northern Nevada's Washoe County say they expect half of their voters to cast ballots early.

There will be 20 polling locations in that county. Most will offer early voting from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Sunday.

If you choose instead to vote on Tuesday, RTC will offer free rides on all transit services. 

In partnership with the Washoe County Registrar of Voters, the RTC is offering free transit service to everyone to be able to reach polling locations. Check route and schedule information at as not all polling locations are served by transit.

“Access to the election process should not be a barrier for anyone. Using public transportation to reach the polls is an opportunity open to everyone in our community,” said RTC Executive Director Lee Gibson.
