PUBLIC NOTICE From Your Elko County Clerk, Kristine Jakeman
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to ensure the safety of the voters and the election workers, the decision was made by the Secretary of State and the County Officials to conduct the Primary Election by all-mail ballots. There have been many questions and uncertainty surrounding the election. The Elko County Clerk’s Office would like to assure voters that the election is being conducted with integrity and transparency. Elko County has 12 mailing precincts with approximately 1,600 registered voters, so we are accustomed to receiving mail-in ballots, verifying signatures and tallying the ballots in an honest and professional manner.
Following is the schedule for early voting and Election Day:
