RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The primary election is just 5 days away, but you still have time to vote early.
"Here in Nevada we run a closed primary so if you're not registered as a Democratic or Republican party-affiliated member, then you will see a non-partisan ballot; however when it comes to the general elections, everyone will see the same ballot. So all the races, partisan and non-partisan you will see in your ballot," says Registrar of Voters Deanna Spikula.
25 thousand people have already cast their votes in Washoe County. This year, voting is 11% higher than in 2014.
If you are a first-time voter, remember to have your I.D. with you. For the last early-voting day, June 8, voters are encouraged to show up between 9 o'clock in the morning and noon to avoid long lines, although early voting goes through 6 p.m.
This year, new voting equipment is designed to make the entire process easier for voters.
"Bring that sample ballot, be an informed voter, come out to vote, cast that ballot, and don't be a first-time voter and that's it, be a career voter," said David Tapia, poll worker.
