Nearly 1.3 million Nevadans are registered as active voters.
Nevada’s 2012 general election becomes official when the state Supreme Court convenes Tuesday to certify the results. More than 1 million Nevadans cast ballots in the Nov. 6 election, for a record voter turnout of nearly 81 percent.
The closely-watched, expensive and often acrimonious 4th District Congressional primary race among Republicans lived up to its billing as a nail-biter for much of election night before Danny Tarkanian opened up a lead of a thousand votes over rival Barbara Ceveske and declared victory.
Not too many Nevadans are taking advantage of early voting. The secretary of state’s office says less than 6% of the state’s one-million-plus voters cast early ballots last week.
