LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Saturday marked the start of in-person early voting, and thousands of Nevadans got in line to cast their ballots in the general election over the weekend.
Turnout is expected to stay strong here in the valley all this week too.
Here in Clark County, over 50,000 people came to the early voting polls.
On Saturday, there were 27, 217 votes cast in person, and on Sunday, 23,135 votes.
For mail-in ballots in Nevada as a whole, over 175,000 have already been cast on last check.

Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said the turnout wasn’t record-breaking, but still significant.
He said lines have been long at polling places, and mail-in ballots are also coming in fast.
“I know we’re well over 100,000 mail ballots that have been sent in to be processed. If we continue to average 25,000 a day, we’ll be at 350,000 voters for early voting, so I think that’s good. That’s well balanced and it means that on Election Day, we shouldn’t have a large number of voters coming out, which means lines shouldn’t be too bad,” Gloria said.
Early voting continues through Friday, October 30th.
