WASHOE COUNTY NEWS RELEASE
The Washoe County Registrar of Voters reminds all registered voters that early voting for the 2011 special election ends Friday.
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 ballot for locations and hours of operation. For a complete schedule, visit www.washoecounty.us/voters/11EVSchedule.htm or call (775) 328-3670.
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.
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 secretary of state has ruled that results cannot be posted until after all polling places in the state have been closed the day of the special election, Sept. 13. After the secretary of state consents to their release, tallied results will be posted on Washoe County’s website; 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 Sept. 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.
