Saturday is the last day to register to vote by mail, in the field or through any agencies in the Aug. 15 primary election.
Residents who miss the Saturday deadline can register in person at the clerk-recorder office until July 25. Proof of identity and residence, such as photo identification and utility bills, is required.
"This is the time of year when we start getting busy," said Alan Glover, clerk-recorder and head of Carson City elections operations.
That office, 885 East Musser St., Suite 1025, is open weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. On June 24 and 25, however, extended hours of operation will allow people to register until 9 p.m., according to election officials. For details, call 887-2260 or visit www.carson-city.nv.us/clerk/elections.
Sample ballots should begin reaching registered voters' mailboxes next week, he said.
Carson City Board of Supervisors Ward 3, the sheriff, assessor, treasurer, clerk-recorder, justice of the peace dept. 2, and two school district trustee positions will be on the primary ballot.
The two candidates who receive the most votes during the primary election continue on to the general election.
Any candidate who receives more than 50 percent of the vote will be declared the winner, making inclusion on the Nov. 7 general election ballot unnecessary.
Races with more than two hopefuls, such as the supervisor ward 3 with four candidates and School Trustee Dept. 6 with three competitors, will be decided during the general election if no candidate garners the required majority amount.
The rest of the local seats on the primary ballot are non-contested.
Not all local races will be determined as a result of the primary election. Carson supervisor ward 1, justice of the peace dept. 1, and school districts trustee depts. 3 and 4, will be decided during the Nov. 7 election.
The $25 million Carson City School District bond also will be on the November ballot.
All of the local seats are non-partisan.
State races included on the primary ballot include governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, treasurer, state assembly district 40 and university board of regents, dist. 9.
