(Carson City, NV; May 18, 2010) - Secretary of State Ross Miller, the state’s Chief Elections Officer, is reminding Nevadans they have until 9 o’clock tonight to go to their local elections officials’ offices to register to vote in the June 8 primary election. Individuals who have never registered to vote in Nevada or have changed addresses since they last voted must complete the voter registration form in order to cast a full ballot.
State law requires all county clerks’ and voter registrars’ offices to be open to the public from 7 until 9 tonight in addition to their regular business hours.
“The primary election is much earlier this year than we’re used to and I want to make sure everybody who wants to vote is able to,” Secretary Miller said today. “There are important primary races up and down the ticket, so I encourage everyone who hasn’t already done so to make the trip to their local county offices and get registered tonight before the 9 PM deadline.”
Individuals can still register to vote after 9 pm today, but will not be able to vote until the November 2 general election.
Voters can visit My Voter File
to check their voter registration status. Early voting for the primary election begins this Saturday, May 22. Voters can find the early voting locations nearest them at Nevada Secretary of State : 2010 Early Voting Information
. Election results will be available after the polls close at 7 PM on June 8 at www.silverstate2010.com (site still in production).
