LAS VEGAS (AP) — Voting is completed in Nevada, with no major voting glitches reported.

An aide to the secretary of state and a Clark County election spokesman say the last polling places closed about 8 p.m. in the Las Vegas area.

Washoe County Registrar of Voters Luanne Cutler says the last of the 86 polling sites in and around Reno closed at 7:45 p.m.

Ballot sites remained open in some areas to accommodate people still in line when polls officially closed at 7 p.m.

Nevada is playing a key role in deciding whether Democrat Hillary Clinton or Republican Donald Trump will become president.

Voters are also deciding a highly competitive race to replace U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, and perhaps which party holds the Senate majority.

Just over half the state’s 1.5 million active registered voters cast ballots through early or absentee voting.

The Secretary of State reports that by 5 p.m., more than 1 million votes had been cast early and on Election Day.

Democrats had a 6-point lead over Republicans in early turnout, but Republicans traditionally outperform Democrats on Election Day.
