It is against the law to intimidate other voters during the election process. That includes threatening to inflict any physical or mental injury on a person or their property.

Officials said breaking this rule is a felony.

Poll watchers are in place to make sure you feel safe while casting your vote.

The registrar of voters said there will also be people watching the poll watchers to make sure everyone is playing by the rules.


Nevada is an open carry state, and the registrar said guns will be allowed in some areas.

Voters cannot speak to other voters about what they plan to mark on their ballots.

You are also not allowed to post signs that support or oppose a candidate.

Buying, selling, or displaying any badge, button or signs that promote the success or defeat of a candidate or ballot question is also prohibited.

According to the county, over 50,000 people throughout the valley voted early during the first weekend.
