Around a fifth of Douglas County voters have cast a ballot already in the 2022 general election.
Figures released Friday night show that 8,140 ballots have been accepted by the Douglas County Clerk-Treasurer’s Office in the first half of early voting.
There are another half-dozen days of early voting before it ends on Nov. 4 in preparation for the Nov. 8 General Election.
If the rate of early voting holds, it’s possible as many as 16,000 voters will have cast a ballot by the end of early voting, representing 40 percent of the electorate.
Early in-person voting continues 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at the Historic Douglas County Courthouse in Minden and at the Douglas County Community and Senior Center in Gardnerville.
Voters may also drop off their paper ballots at the two locations.
