County voters set record for early voting in midterm election
Clark County voters cast their ballots in record numbers on the first day of Nevada’s two-week early-voting period.
The Saturday turnout of more than 27,000 votes cast as of 5 p.m. was the most ever on the first day of early voting in a midterm election, Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin confirmed.
With a couple of hours left to go before the polls closed, the figure was already nearly 10,000 more than the previous record of 17,057, set in 2012, according to Nevada secretary of state records.
People standing in lines to cast their ballots Saturday morning throughout the Las Vegas Valley represented a mix of political views, voting histories and concerns about myriad issues at the state and national levels.
