Early in-person voting will be replaced by the regular kind when polls open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

With three Douglas County commissioner seats up, turnout among Republicans was at 25.1 percent on Saturday morning, leading the total 20.3 percent leading up to Election Day.

Clerk-Treasurer Amy Burgans said there was a steady stream of voters at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center for the last day of early in-person voting.

As of Saturday morning, 7,521 voters have cast their mail ballot in Douglas County, with 1,248 voting in person on the machines at the Community Center in Gardnerville.

Machines will be available 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at five locations across the county.

In addition to the Community Center in Gardnerville, polls will be open at Kahle Community Center in Stateline, the Topaz Ranch Es-tates Community Center, the Washoe Tribe Community Center in Dresslerville and the offices of the Indian Hills General Improvement District.

Any voter may cast their ballot at any of the polling places. They may also drop off the ballots they received in the mail at any of the locations and at the Election Tent behind the historic Douglas Coun-ty Courthouse in Minden.

Besides the three commissioner races, Republicans will also get to chose whether to retain Rep. Mark Amodei, who is being challenged by Foothill resident Dr. Fred Simon, and one of the dozen hopefuls for the nomination for U.S. Senate.

The only race solely on Democrats’ ballot is whether to retain Sen. Jacky Rosen, who is facing Mike Schaefer and Troy Walker.

Everyone will see the races for University Regent District 9 and State School Board District 2 on their ballots.

Residents with a valid drivers license, or ID card, may register in person on Election Day, if they have proof of residency and will re-ceive a provisional ballot.

Unofficial results from early voting and mailed ballots may be re-leased around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Clerk-Treasurer Amy Burgans urged those using the ballots they re-ceived in the mail to get them in early, so they can be included in preliminary results.
