The Board of Examiners on
Tuesday approved a $1 million contract with KPS3 to provide a “full service
voter education marketing campaign” to help voters through the upcoming primary
Funding for the project was
provided by the federal government through the Help America Vote Act. The
company will develop and implement a marketing plan including creation and
maintenance of a website, creation of marketing materials and media access.
The contract was made
necessary after Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske and her staff along with
county election officials agreed to go with a mail-in ballot instead of
in-person voting for the June 9 primary election.
Elections Deputy Wayne
Thorley said in normal times, more than 80 percent of Nevadans vote in person.
This June, those who can’t do
a mail-in ballot for any reason can still vote in person at designated sites in
each county. In Carson City, that will be the clerk’s office on the ground
floor of the courthouse.
Ballots have already been
mailed to Carson City’s active voters. Inactive voters are urged to contact the
clerk’s office either by phone, in person or online and fix whatever problem
there is with their voter registration so that they can receive a ballot.
Early voting begins May 23
and runs through June 5, the Friday before the election.
