LAS VEGAS (AP) - Poll watchers were conspicuous at polling
places around Nevada.
But public officials and representatives of a self-styled "election protection" coalition say they found few conflicts and no legal problems during voting.
Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax says he saw more than five poll watchers from two parties and various other entities at polling places around Las Vegas.
Some polling stations remained open for about 30 minutes to handle voters who were in line when polls closed at 7 p.m.
Robert Walsh, spokesman for Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller, quickly declared Election Day a success.
County election officials will have six days to certify their votes as complete, and the Nevada Supreme Court is scheduled to canvass the results on Nov. 25.
