Early voting kicked off Saturday for city elections, and turnout appears to be strong. The big draw, of course, is the Las Vegas mayor’s race, which is pitting two women against each other for the city’s top job.
It represents a turning point for Las Vegas, ending Oscar Goodman’s twelve year reign as mayor.Voter turnout is the key for candidates, Carolyn Goodman and Chris Giunchigliani, who are wrangling their way to the finish line.
…The viewpoints my vary, but one thing is certain, the race is triggering a strong voter turnout.
“In Las Vegas, it’s been exceptionally good,” says Clark County Registrar of Voters, Larry Lomax.
Lomax says these next two weeks of early voting, can play a big role in deciding who wins. “More than 50 percent of the voters routinely vote in the early voting period.”
