City of Las Vegas registered voters are urged to cast their ballots in the upcoming city Primary Election Tuesday, April 7.

Two additional Clark County elections offices also will receive absentee ballots on Primary Election Day: Clark County Election Center, 965 Trade Drive, Suite A, North Las Vegas, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Clark County Election Department, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Primary Election Day, residents living in Wards 1, 3 and 5 can vote for a City Council candidate who would represent their areas. All city of Las Vegas registered voters will have the opportunity to vote for mayor as well as a Municipal Court judge for department 1. Early voting for the Primary Election will end Friday, April 3. Some seats may be decided in the Primary Election. According to the Las Vegas City Charter, if one candidate receives 50 percent plus one of the votes cast during the Primary Election, he or she must be declared elected. No General City Election will be held for that office. However, if no candidate is declared elected in the Primary Election, 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 June 2. Voters should check their sample ballots for their designated polling location, or call the Clark County Registrar of Voters at 455-VOTE (8683) to learn their designated polling location. Voters also can look up their polling place location using the Registered Voter Services option on the Clark County election website. Once polls close at 7 p.m., ongoing election results will be posted on the Clark County election website, www.clarkcountynv.gov/depts/election/pages/default.aspx, and on the city’s government-access television station, KCLV Cable Channel 2.
