Record numbers of Nevadans have already turned out to make their voices heard.
Nevada allowed in-person early voting from October 17 until this past Friday, October 30. Together with mail-in ballots, the state has already accounted for the ballots of 1,125,580 people (as of Monday, November 2 at 8:30 am). That’s over half of all active registered voters in the state!
Like many states, Nevada has a multitude of seats to fill this election season. Dozens of statewide, legislative and judicial offices will soon be decided, including four U.S. House seats, in addition to five statewide ballot questions.
According to the Nevada Secretary of State as of yesterday morning, about 40% of ballots for the general election have been cast by Democrats, around 36% by Republicans, while unaffiliated and third-party voters account for around 25% of casted ballots.
Today, Election Day 2020, the polls open to the remainder of voters looking to exercise their civic duty. Polls open at 7 am and remain open until 7 pm. Voters will be allowed to cast their ballots as long as they are in line by 7 pm.
