If you want to vote in the November 6 general election, you must be registered to vote by Saturday, October 6. This applies to new Nevada residents and those with changes to their information. Changes include things like address, name, and party affiliation.
For a refresher on offices up for grabs and candidates seeking your support, refer to my "General Election 2012 Candidates in Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County" article.
Once you have decided who you will vote for, you don't have to wait until Election Day and stand in a long line. Nevada is one of the states with early voting and you can do so from Saturday, October 20 through Friday, November 2. There will be early voting locations throughout Washoe County and voters can cast their ballots at any of them. On Election Day, you must vote in the precinct in which you are registered and at the specified polling place.
According to the Washoe County Registrar of Voters, there are 86,835 registered Democrats and 89,443 registered Republicans out of a total of 230,567 registered voters. Several thousand are registered under other party affiliations or as independents. For a detailed breakdown by precinct, refer to the "Precinct Count Detail" published by the registrar on September 27, 2012.
