Early Voting Over for Nevadans

Nevada voters may play a key role in deciding this year's Presidential election. According to Washoe County Registrar of Voters, Dan Burk, that’s one reason why early voters have turned out in record numbers over the past two weeks.

Friday marked the last day for early voting in the Silver State. According to the Nevada Secretary of State’s website, 39.20% of registered Washoe County voters hit their polling places early this year. That’s slightly less that the state average of 41.75% participation.
Dan Burk says when the absentee ballots are added up, early voting numbers could be as high as 50%.

With at least half of registered voters waiting to hit the polls on November 4th, the number of voting sites and available machines will be greatly increased. But Burk says, since you must vote in your precinct on that day voters may experience long lines and longer wait times than early voters.
