Nevada Primary Elections are Closed

A closed primary election is one in which voters are only allowed to vote for candidates from their own party, as well as those in nonpartisan contests. For example, a registered Democrat will receive a ballot with the various Democratic primary candidates, plus those running for nonpartisan offices and ballot questions applicable to his or her precinct. Nevada recognizes two major political parties (Republican and Democrat) and two minor parties (Independent American and Libertarian). If you are registered to vote as anything other than a Republican or Democrat, your ballot will only show nonpartisan office candidates and ballot questions applicable to your precinct.
