Results remain unofficial until the verifciation of unofficial results goes before the Board of County Commissioners for Declaration of Canvas of the Vote on June 19, 2018. After this meeting, results are then declared "final & official".

Update as of 3:15 p.m.

Reno, Nev. June 12, 2018. Washoe County Registrar of Voters, Deanna Spikula, reports 19,401 voters in Washoe County voted by 3:15 pm this afternoon.

All 79 polling locations are open and available for Washoe County registered voters to cast a ballot for the 2018 Primary Election.

Washoe County Registrar of Voters Office has received some reports from this morning that voters experienced a ballot display issue while voting.

Candidates ballot display issue

The Registrar of Voters has confirmed limited cases reported where a voter does not see a complete list of candidates on the ballot for a race. Once identified, poll workers rectified the issue and the voter was able to cast a complete ballot. This issue can be resolved at the polling location by alerting a poll worker.

Fled Voter

Another issue that has arisen is a “fled voter”. This happens when a voter does not complete or officially cast their ballot and remove their card and return the still-active card to the poll worker.  The poll worker isn’t aware the voter did not complete the ballot and reassigns the card to someone else who then sees the unfinished ballot.

“With any new system, there will be unforeseen issues that will need to be addressed,” says Deanna Spikula, Registrar of Voters. “After the election we will be reviewing each instance and our vendor, Dominion voting, has let us know that these instances are trackable.”      

Free Transit

In partnership with the Registrar of Voters, the RTC is offering free transit service to ensure everyone is able to reach a polling location. Please check route and schedule information at www.rtcwashoe.com as not all polling locations are served by transit.

Results

All unofficial election results will be released after they are approved by the Nevada Secretary of State for release.

Unofficial results and election updates are also available throughout Primary Election Day on the Washoe County website, www.washoecounty.us and Twitter @washoecounty or #WashoeVotes. After the polls close you can follow the Washoe County YouTube channel for a live feed of the evening.
