Clerk expects election update Thursday night


Carson City Clerk-Recorder Aubrey Rowlatt is expecting to have election result updates Thursday night but couldn’t give an exact time.

Rowlatt told the Appeal around noon on Thursday her office is working through a minimum of 2,000 mail-in ballots that were postmarked up to or on Election Day. Rowlatt said her office has until Saturday to accept mail-in ballots that adhere to state guidelines.

She urged campaigns, especially those in close races, to be patient.

“Please be patient,” she said. “We’re trying to keep reporting as we’re getting them.”

Several local races remain too close to call. For example, according to results last updated Tuesday, Carson City Clerk-Recorder candidate William Scott Hoen leads challenger Stacie Wilke-McCulloch by 516 voters: 9,064 to 8,548.

Rowlatt said her office is in the process of curing 78 mail-in ballots. The clerk's office, located in the Carson City Courthouse, will be open Friday and Saturday to accept mail ballot signature cures.
