LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Polling centers throughout Clark County are expected to open through 7 p.m. Tuesday for Primary Election Day.
The county's Election website defines the Primary as the nominating election process in which each major party selects a candidate for each office it will send forward to the General Election in November. In addition, Nevada is a closed Primary Election State, which means the voter can only vote for candidates from the party they registered.
A voter may also vote on a nonpartisan ballot if that person registered nonpartisan or with a party other than Democrat or Republican.
Tuesday's vote will include candidate selections for the U.S. Senate race for the seat occupied currently by Sen. Dean Heller, R-NV, as well as the four U.S. House seats up for grabs in Nevada.
The national presidential race is reserved for the General Election.
Registered voters in Clark County will use an electronic voting machine to cast their ballot. You are asked to bring the sample ballot that was mailed to you prior to the election.

Your assigned polling place will be marked on your sample ballot.
