Reno, Nevada.  May 27, 2014. Early voting for the upcoming primary election is underway at 16 polling locations through June 6.  Several polling locations will also be open on Sundays again this year.

The Washoe County Registrar of Voters, Luanne Cutler, says all sample ballots for the 217,000 registered voters have been delivered. “This year the primary election sample ballots are longer due to the high volume of candidates running for office. We want to remind voters that it’s helpful to bring them to the polling place but certainly not necessary.”

If registered voters have any questions about the sample ballot they have received in the mail they should contact the Washoe County Registrar of Voters Office at (775) 328-3670.

If your address has changed and you haven’t notified the Registrar’s Office, the sample ballot won’t be delivered through the mail prior to the primary election. Sample ballots, polling place assignments and mail-in ballot status are also now available at www.washoecounty.us/voters. Registered voters are able to get this information online simply by entering their last name and date of birth.

Cutler adds, “Identification is not typically needed but just in case, it would be helpful to bring it with you to the polls. Nearly 3,000 voters cast early ballots over the holiday weekend and we expect turnout to pick up even more over the next 10 days.”

The exact hours and locations of early voting sites are available on the Registrar of Voters website.
