Primary Election Results to be Finalized June 19

I Voted Sticker Spool on White Surface

Because of recent changes to state law, as well as the fact the 2020 primary election is being conducted primarily by mail ballot, Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske advises voters, candidates, and the media that primary election results will not be finalized until June 19, 2020. By law, county election officials have seven calendar days to receive and count mail ballots that are postmarked on or before June 9. Counties also have 10 calendar days after an election to certify election results.

Results for the 2020 primary election will be released on the following schedule. All results are unofficial until certified by the county. Election results will be posted at:

  • Tuesday, June 9 – After the polls close at 7 p.m. and the last voter in line has cast a ballot, the counties will begin reporting election results to the Secretary of State. The first results will be posted online at approximately 8:30 p.m. These results will consist of all the ballots the counties have counted to date. At midnight, updates to the results will stop being posted.
  • Wednesday, June 10 – No additional results will be posted.
  • Thursday, June 11 to Wednesday, June 17 – At approximately 9 a.m. each day, updated election results will be posted online. These results will include the ballots the counties counted the previous day.
  • June 19 – Official results for the 2020 primary election results will be posted. At this point all ballots will have been counted and the results will have been certified.

The 2020 primary election is held today, Tuesday, June 9. The election is being conducted primarily by mail ballot. Limited in-person voting locations will be available on June 9. In-person ballot drop off locations will also be available on June 9. Voters appearing in person to cast their ballot will be given a paper ballot. For more information on the 2020 Nevada primary election, please visit or follow the Nevada Secretary of State on Facebook or Twitter.

The decision to automatically mail every registered voter a ballot applies only to the 2020 primary election. The general election, which will be held on Nov. 3, 2020, will be conducted under normal circumstances. As a reminder, any registered voter in Nevada can request to vote by absentee ballot for any election. The voter does not have to reside out of the state or have a qualifying reason to vote by absentee ballot. Churchill County residents may request an absentee ballot for the 2020 general election, by filling out an Absentee Ballot Request Application and submitting it to the Churchill County Clerk’s Office, 155 N. Taylor Street, Suite 110, Fallon.

Secretary Cegavske would like to thank all 17 county election officials and their staff for the tremendous work they put into preparing for the state’s first ever vote-by-mail election. Since the vote-by-mail primary election was announced on March 27, countless hours have been spent in order to ensure the primary election could be conducted on June 9, as required by state law. The Secretary would also like to thank the voters of Nevada who have overwhelmingly responded positively to the temporary change to a vote-by-mail election.
