Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said he is looking forward to getting some sleep following what he calls a “very stressful election.”

During his daily morning briefing, Gloria said his team processed 549 ballots Tuesday that represented signature cures and ID required ballots.

The deadline for mail-in ballot was Tuesday and 15 ballots arrived in the mail late in the day which were eligible to count. The deadline for signature cures is Thursday at 5 p.m. but Gloria said those are nearly done.

Gloria said “good progress” has also been made on the provisional ballots and determining which are eligible to be counted. He said in the coming days there will be a “big jump” in the early voting and election day numbers as those provisional ballots are counted.

“We don’t have anticipate having any issue rolling those into the system tomorrow.”

Gloria said if there is a recount his office must get that started within five days of the request and finish in five days. He said the ballots would be counted the same way.

Gloria said his daily news briefings will end on Friday.
