LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Voters in southern Nevada and around the country are headed to the polls, if they haven’t already voted early or by mail, to cast their vote in the 2022 midterm elections.

The Nevada polls opened at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m. but if you are already in line to vote when it reaches closing time, you will still be allowed to remain in line and cast your ballot.

Nevada is among several swing states that could determine control of the U.S. Senate. Democrat Senator Catherine Cortez Masto is in a tough race against Republican and former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt. A recent poll showed Laxalt slightly ahead.

The re-election campaigns for three of Nevada’s U.S. House seats held by Democrats Dina Titus, Susie Lee, and Steven Horsford are up. Also, Democratic Governor Steve Sisolak is in a fight against Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo to keep his seat.

There were already long lines at some polling sites Tuesday morning before the polls opened.
