The Oct. 25 R-C Morning Report

Early voting rose a bit on Wednesday with 1,116 Douglas residents casting a ballot bringing that total to 4,181. That’s about 1,100 back from this same point in 2016, which isn’t bad for a mid-term. With mail-in ballots that’s 6,851 voters who’re done for this election.


The Early Voting Road Show lands in Gardnerville 1-5 p.m. today at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center. Early voting continues at the courthouse 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Friday.


While state and local offices are closed for Friday’s Nevada Day holiday, I’m not sure that will have much impact unless you were hoping to get a last-minute building permit.


The Nevada Day Parade is 10 a.m. Saturday. Nevada became a state Oct. 31, 1864, in one of the longest, longshots in American history. We’ve been celebrating ever since.


It’s going to be a relatively warm Nevada Day weekend with highs reaching toward the 80s on Friday and Saturday, before cooling off to more Halloween temperatures next week.


Today expect a high temperature of 72 degrees under sunny skies with a light breeze out of the east.
