The first day of early voting in Clark County saw a record turnout, according to county officials. As early voting for the general election kicked off at many locations throughout the county on Saturday.

As of 3 p.m., turnout was almost 22,000, according to county spokesperson Dan Kulin. Already making it the highest first-day turnout ever for a midterm election.  

Kulin later updated the turnout figure to more than 27,000 as of 5 p.m.

Early voting continues until Nov. 2 at more than 90 polling places, according to the county. 

Meadows, Boulevard and the Galleria at Sunset mall are included in those early sites, as well as Downtown Summerlin and Centennial Center.

Voters may cast their ballot at any early voting location during the 14 days of early voting, or they may vote on Election Day, Nov. 6, at a vote center.

Election Day vote centers are similar to early voting polling places as any Clark County registered voter may cast their ballot at any vote center.

The centers are expected to make voting more convenient this year for voters, as there are no more assigned polling places, and voters may choose to go to a vote center of their choice, according to Clark County.
