Clerk announces polling places
Four polling places will be open across Douglas County for the Nov. 3 General Election.
The Douglas County Clerk-Treasurer’s Office will have voting booths at the Douglas County Community Center, the Washoe Tribe Community Center, the Kahle Community Center and the Topaz Ranch Estates Community Center on Election Day.
Early voting is expected to start 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 17 and 24 at the Douglas County Community Center in Gardnerville.
Early in-person voting at the community center, located at 1329 Waterloo Lane, will continue 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 19-23 and Oct. 26-30. An election tent at the Douglas County Courthouse in Minden will be open for voters to request a mailed ballot or pick up a replacement ballot.
