LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada election officials are seeking to conduct a June primary election almost entirely by mail, canceling most in-person voting out because of the coronavirus.

Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske's office said Tuesday that absentee ballots would be mailed out to all active registered voters ahead of the June 9 election, which voters will have to fill out and return in a prepaid envelope or bring to a number of ballot drop-off locations.

Cegavske's office says it will allow at least one in-person polling location in each county to accommodate a new same-day voter registration law.
