Secretary Of State Releasing More Election Results

The Nevada Secretary of State is releasing more results from Tuesday's primary election, which was marked by hours-long lines that delayed initial results until early Wednesday morning.

Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske significantly reduced the number of in-person polling places for the election because of the coronavirus and instead encouraged voters to cast ballots by mail.

Though many cast ballots by mail or took advantage of two weeks of in-person early voting, many voters still showed up at the polls Tuesday, including those who said they didn't receive ballots.

The lines overwhelmed three polling places in Clark County, leading to delays of up to eight hours, and causing nearly three-hour waits at the only polling place in Washoe County.

Cegavske's office says it will release a new batch of results every day until Wednesday, June 17.

Official results will be certified and released June 19.
