Washoe County Registrar Reminds Voters That Early Voting Ends Friday, September 9; Check Your Sample Ballot for Early Voting Locations

Washoe County Registrar of Voters reminds all registered voters that Early Voting for the 2011 Special Election ends Friday, September 9th.

For the 2011 Special Election, there are 14 Early Voting locations – you can vote at any of the Early Voting locations. Be sure to check your sample for ballot for locations and hours of operation. For a complete schedule, visit: www.washoecounty.us/voters/11EVSchedule.htm or call: (775) 328-3670.

Poll Watchers: All registered voters can expect to see “poll watchers” when they come to vote. Poll watchers represent the political parties, candidates and advocacy groups and are required to conduct themselves consistent with the guidelines established by the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office.

Political Activity: By state law, any political activity must occur at least 100 feet from the polling place entrance. This measurement will be marked off at each polling location.

The Results: The Secretary of State has ruled that results cannot be posted until after all polling places in the state have been closed. After the Secretary of State consents to their release, tallied results will be posted on Washoe County’s website (www.washoecounty.us); a link on the front page will take the viewer to the “Results Page.” A hard copy will also be provided to those waiting in the Registrar’s Office for such information. Throughout the evening of September 13, results will be updated using the County’s stand-alone tabulation system, and a report will be generated and made available within minutes to the public via the County’s website.
