Clerk's Office announces paper ballot and hand-count procedures for General Election

NYE COUNTY, NV - September 6, 2022 

Nye County Clerk Mark F. Kampf will administer the 2022 General Election using only paper ballots for both mail-in and at the polls, with provisions for ADA compliance.

The Clerk’s Office will conduct a parallel electronic tabulation of the voted paper ballots along with a hand count of those ballots.   While the tabulation is used to count the mail-in ballots currently, the electronic counting will be extended to the paper ballots voted at the polls.  A hand count will also be performed on all the paper ballots (both mail-in and at the polls) as requested by the Nye County Board of Commissioners.  All registration and verification processes both at the polls and for mail-in ballots will remain essentially the same.

On March 15th, the County Commission voted 5-0 to request the Nye County Clerk to consider administering the 2022 Primary and General elections using only paper ballots and hand-counting the paper ballots submitted by Nye County voters to ensure accuracy and transparency of the democratic voting process.

Since the hand count process will be performed by citizen volunteers who are registered voters, the Clerk is seeking help from registered voters from all political parties and non-partisan voters to participate in the process.  The hand count will be conducted weekdays during the period starting on October 25th to November 10th.  Please go to the Nye County Clerk's Elections website here to obtain an application to volunteer to be part of the hand-count team at this link.

Media: Please contact County Clerk Mark F. Kampf for all comments and interview requests.
