Early voting for Nevada Primary Elections begins Saturday, meaning voting sites all over Clark County will be open for the next two weeks.
Residents of Boulder City will also have a brief opportunity to cast an early ballot in person.
Boulder City residents taking part in early voting can cast their ballots Tuesday and Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at city hall.
City clerk Lorene Krumm said there are a couple of ways to speed up the voting process.
“Bring a sample ballot and photo ID – that will really help speed up the process,” Krumm said. “The sample ballots have a barcode on them that can sign you up really quickly, so just bring in a physical sample ballot or one on your phone.”
Nevada Primaries are closed so you must be a registered member of your candidate’s party. Early voting in Boulder City is only available on the two above dates, but early voting in Henderson is available for the full 14-day voting period.

The 2016 Primaries look to have a number of competitive races, including the race to take Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate seat and a race to take Rep. Joe Heck’s place in Congressional District 3. Heck hopes to take Reid’s place in the Senate.
Boulder City voters will have a chance to vote for one of the six Democrats or seven Republicans running for District 3. Local voters can also vote for one of the nine Republicans or four Democrats running for Harry Reid’s seat.
