Carson City voters have until Friday to cast their ballots early in the primary election.

Tuesday's primary election could whittle Carson's four mayoral candidates down to two, or even result in a winner.

Other races on the primary ballot in Carson City include supervisor and justice of the peace.

Some city candidates may walk away from the primary an elected official. If one person gets 50 percent or more of the primary vote, they win the election.

Early voting, which as of Tuesday evening drew 2,469 voters, ends Friday at 7 p.m. At the same time in 1998, 2,311 people had voted early. About 110 people had voted Wednesday by 2 p.m.

About 11,000 of the city's 21,209 active registered voters are expected to cast their ballots in the primary. About 3,500 of those are expected to vote before Tuesday's primary, up from 3,300 early voters in the 1998 election.

The city opened the courthouse, 885 E. Musser St., to early voters Aug. 19. It's the first election from the new courthouse, which was completed last year.

Ballots may be cast today and Friday between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. The primary election is Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with voting locations at the Community Center, 801 E. William St.; the Carson Mall, 1313 S. Carson St.; Nevada National Guard, 2522 S. Carson St.; and the Brewery Arts Center, 449 W. King St. If voters don't cast ballots early, they should vote at one of the listed polling locations. For information, call the city's election office at 887-2087.
