Early continues in Nevada, Nye County

Early voting is underway in Nevada for the upcoming primary election.

• June 4 through June 8, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In Tonopah, the early voting schedule is:

Early voting started May 26 in Nevada. For absent voter ballots, the deadline to request them was June 5; deadline to return: June 12.

For more detailed information, go to the Nevada secretary of state’s website at nvsos.gov/sos/elections or call 775-684-5705.

The primary election is June 12.

For some offices, those in which only Republican or only Democratic candidates filed, the primary will be the deciding factor. The winners of those contests will have their names placed on the general election ballot as a matter of form but they will essentially be elected as of the primary.

The top two vote-getters in nonpartisan primary races will go on to the general election, unless one of the candidates receives a majority of the votes in the primary. In that case, they will be considered elected to office and will not have to appear on the general election ballot.
