Early Voting in Nevada by The Pew Charitable Trusts published on 2012-12-18T16:57:40Z Nevada made extensive use of early voting in 2012. 61% of voters voted early. Coupled with increased absentee ballot use, this meant that only around 30% of voters cast their ballots on Election Day. Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller discussed the state’s early voting initiatives at Pew’s 2012 Voting in America conference, which took place on December 10-11, 2012. According to Miller, there were 150 early vote locations all over the community including some unlikely spots like libraries, shopping centers, and supermarkets. We may be the only jurisdiction in the country where you’re likely to hear a call for a ‘ wet mop at voting booth number 8’,” Miller joked.
