Early voting ends Friday

More than 2,100 people have cast a ballot early or absentee so far in the 2016 primary election.

Early voting stops 6 p.m. Friday at the Douglas County Courthouse. On Tuesday, voters will have to go to their polling place to cast a ballot.

As of Monday night, 1,666 Republicans, 336 Democrats and 126 nonpartisans had cast a ballot at early voting. The biggest day so far was May 31 when 443 voters cast a ballot.

The Douglas County Clerk-Treasurer’s Office reports 689 voters turned in absentee ballots.

Absentee ballots may be delivered to the Clerk’s Office up until 7 p.m. Tuesday and be counted.

This is only the fourth primary since Nevada moved the date to June 2010.

This year, it’s winner take all in the Republican primary for Douglas County commissioner.

District 1 Commissioner Greg Lynn is the only incumbent in the race, facing challenger Dave Nelson. Lynn won an August primary against Nelson in 2008.

Planning Commissioner Frank Godecke and former Planning Commissioner Larry Walsh are squaring off for Commission Chairman Doug Johnson’s District 3 seat.

Godecke ran against Johnson in 2012.

Only one man in each race will appear on the November ballot.

Because Nevada has a closed primary, only Republicans will see the commission race on their ballot.

Democrats will see federal races for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. All voters will see school board, which is a nonpartisan race.
