Hundreds of Nevadans wait in line, brave rain to cast their ballot Tuesday morning
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Southern Nevada voters hit the polls and waited in line to cast ballots on Election Day.
The line wrapped around the tent at the Centennial voting center before the doors even opened at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning.
“Did not know how long the line was going to be and the weather,” said voter Darin Nutt.
Nutt was one of those who got up bright and early to stand in line as it was important to him and others to make sure their votes count.
“We sat down, and we looked through the people and the candidates and picked the best that is going to meet our needs and the community needs,’ said Nutt.
“I think it’s our civic duty, it doesn’t matter what party line we’re on,” said voter Dionne Martin. “For me particularly I always vote on the issues that’s important to me, what’s important to my family.”
Martin came with her 20-year-old son who is a first-time voter.
“Making sure that he understands the process and what it is he needs to do, stepping into adulthood,” said Martin. “As a citizen, doing what he’s supposed to do, and making sure that his generation is heard as well.”
Dionne wasn’t the only one to bringing their kids to vote.
“I think it’s important for future generations to know how important it is to get your vote in, and get out there,” said voter Jordyn Carlin. Especially on election day.”

“I think there’s going to be just a massive turnout across the United States,” said voter Darnell Anderson. “As everyone knows, we have certain issues that have to be dealt with. I think that’s really good that the American people are taking the time to vote for the candidate that’s going to do a good job.
