Primary Election Day Almost Here

Primary Election Day is almost here and Las Vegas city officials urge voters to take part.

On Tuesday, registered voters who live within the Las Vegas city limits will be able to vote for a number of races. All registered voters may vote for mayor and municipal judge for Departments 2, 3 and 5, while residents living in Wards 1, 3 and 5 can also vote for a City Council candidate who would represent their areas.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Absentee and mail ballots must be received by the City Clerk before 7 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted.

Once polls close at 7 p.m., election results will be posted on the city's website, www.lasvegasnevada.gov, and on the city’s government access television station, KCLV Cable Channel 2.

Every vote counts because some seats may be decided in the Primary Election. According to the Las Vegas City Charter, if one candidate receives more than 50 percent of the votes during the Primary Election, he or she must be declared elected. No General City Election would be held for that office.

However, if no candidate receives that majority in the Primary, the names of the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes are placed on the ballot for the General Election. The General Election is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7, and residents have until 9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17, to register to vote.
