N.R.S. 293C.625 – Early pickup and delivery of ballots to central counting place; processing of ballots before polls close

Overview of Statute

This section governs the manner in which ballots may be picked up from precincts early.


The city clerk may order deputized officers to pick up all voted ballots from any or all of the precincts or districts after the polls have been opened for 5 hours. At least two deputized officers shall deliver any ballots that are picked up early to the central counting place. The various boards operating the central counting place may begin to process those ballots upon receipt, but no reports may be printed by the counting device or computer until the polls have closed. Any ballots that are picked up early must be transported to the central counting place in the manner prescribed in NRS 293C.635.
