LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — State and county officials are issuing a warning to protect your vote.

The Clark County Elections Office says it has received reports of two unofficial ballot collection sites popping up in the Las Vegas valley that they cannot monitor, and there could be more.

Thousands of ballots have been cast.

Workers are already scanning ballots to the Clark County Elections Tabulation Department, and official ballot drop off parties are urging you to drop it and go.

Ballot collection is legal because of Assembly Bill 4, but both state and county officials are warning you to be cautious about where you leave your ballot or who it is given to.

Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria says they’ve received reports of two unofficial and undisclosed ballot collection sites in the valley.

Gloria is urging voters to avoid any unofficial site as his dozens of drop-off locations are secure and tracked to his office.

The county says it has forwarded the reports of both sites to the Secretary of State’s office for investigation in Nevada.

And the office says they couldn’t comment on the investigation into the unofficial sites – or identify where they were – but any ballot tampering or mishandling is a felony.

Also, early voting sites and those open on Election Day are a ballot drop-off site.
