Who May Vote in the June 12, 2012 Primary Election
What Is a Primary Election
The Primary Election is a nominating election in which each major party (Democrat and Republican) selects, when necessary, the candidate for each office it will send forward to the November General Election. In nonpartisan contests in which more than two candidates filed to run, the two candidates who receive the most votes in the Primary Election go forward to the General Election. Candidates for U.S. President/Vice President and Special District offices only appear in the General Election.
Nevada Is a CLOSED Primary Election State
In Nevada, Federal/State Primary Elections are "CLOSED." That means if you chose Democrat or Republican as your party on your Voter Registration Application, you may vote only for candidates from your own party and you may also vote in nonpartisan contests. If you chose a party affiliation that was anything other than Democrat or Republican, you may vote only in nonpartisan contests.
