“They can either put their mail ballot in the mail to get it postmarked today, or drop it off at any of the drop boxes at all of our vote centers,” Gloria said, adding turnout was expected to pick up as the day progressed.
“I don’t like the things that are happening in my country, so if I don’t come here and try to make changes, then what good am I as a citizen?” Foster said.
“We are printing money like paper,” Foster said. “Sooner or later that bill is going to come to us and I have 10 grandchildren and one great grandchild.”
“I’m looking for folks who are not making a career out of political work,” Shenk said. “They are running for office because they feel they can do something better for the community.”
“I always vote,” Rego said. “I think it is very important to vote. Even if they say your vote doesn’t matter, I think it is important you nonetheless go out and state who you support or what you support … I just hope that people make an informed vote.”
Earlier Tuesday, the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 hosted a canvass launch at its union headquarters on Commerce Street in Las Vegas. The union pushed out what it called “the largest political team in Nevada” with canvassers planning to knock on doors throughout the day to help drive turnout.
“We have hundreds of culinary worker members fired up, ready to go out, knock on doors and deliver votes,” said Ted Pappageorge, secretary-treasurer for the union. “We need to make a statement out there today … We want to make sure that workers’ voices are heard.”
“Out-of-state, corporate, price gouging landlords — somebody’s got to do something about it,” he said, adding the price of housing “is making it tougher for people to own homes and (they are) jacking up rents.”
“I know culinary is going to be knocking doors,” she said. “Other unions will be too. We will be going around to some of the voting places. We’ve got to get the turnout up.”
A list of polling places is included in voters’ sample ballot packets and is also available through the Election Department website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/vote.
“More than 68,000 Clark County voters cast their ballot during the early voting period that ended Friday, and already more than 90,000 mail ballots have been processed,” the county said. “Preliminary vote totals will be released starting Tuesday night online and will be updated periodically with results from Primary Election Day and additional mail ballot returns. Primary election results will be made official on June 24.”
