Voters have only a few days left to cast their ballots during early voting.

Unless voters voted by mail, they will have one more in-person session at the Fallon Convention Center on Tuesday, June 11 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Early voting takes place from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Churchill County Commission chambers, 155 N. Taylor St. All registered voters in Churchill County may vote in person during the published early voting hours or from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, including those who received a mail ballot and did not yet return it.

Voters may also leave their ballot in a secure drop box at the county building.

Results of the primary election will first be posted on the Lahontan Valley News website and Facebook page.

Voters also have a wealth of information from the candidates who participated in a community questionnaire and attended Candidates Night on May 20 at the Fallon Convention Center. The questionnaires may be found in the Lahontan Valley News, print and online, and also on the LVN Facebook page.

The city of Fallon has one contested race, and that’s for mayor. Challenging incumbent Ken Tedford are Luai Ababneh and Jacob Robertson. Karla Kent is running for re-election to the city council, but since she didn’t draw an opponent, her name will not appear on the ballot.

Two races loom for the commission. School board trustees Matt Hyde and Julie Guerrero-Goetsch are seeking the District 1 seat, which is being vacated by Dr. Justin Heath.

Four candidates are seeking the District 3 opening. They are Eric Blakey, John Caetano, Rusty Jardine and Todd Moretto. Former Commissioner Harry “Bus” Scharmann held the position on a two-year appointment after the previous commissioner, Dr. Greg Koenig, was elected to the Assembly. Koenig is running unopposed for a second term.

Another race is for the New River Township Justice of the Peace.

Incumbent Ben Trotter seeks another six-year term, but he’s being challenged by Brenda Ingram and Stuart Richardson.

For District 9 of the Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents, the nonpartisan candidates for the four-year seat are incumbent Carol Del Carlo, Bret Delaire and Gary Johnson. For the State Board of Education District 2, the candidates are Matthew Buehler, Paul “Doc” Davis, Dorzell King Jr. and incumbent Angela Orr.

Buehler was the only candidate for the State Board of Education who talked to local voters at last month’s Candidates Night.

Statewide, the race to watch is for the Republican nominee who’ll emerge from a large field to challenge incumbent U.S. Sen. Jacky Rosen, a Democrat running for her second term.

The Republican candidates are Sam Brown, a medical support company founder and U.S. Army veteran; William Conrad, former Modesto, California, city councilor; Tony Grady Jr., Reno Air Races director of flight operations, U.S. Air Force veteran; Jeffrey Ross Gunter, former U.S. Ambassador to Iceland; Edward Hamilton, businessman; Ronda Kennedy, civil rights attorney; Barry Lindemann, real estate developer and independent candidate; Garn Mabey, former Minority Leader of the Nevada Assembly; Jim Marchant, former state assemblyman for the 37th district and founder of the America First Secretary of State Coalition; Gary Marinch, real estate investor; Stephanie Phillips, real estate broker; Vincent Rego, delivery driver; and Shawn White, Henderson fire chief.
