2022 Primary Voter Guide – Nevada Current

Below are links to overviews and other coverage of select Southern Nevada and statewide races that will be on the June primary ballot this year. We have deliberately focused mostly on down-ballot and especially non-partisan races. Those contests for judges, school board and the like often get little attention and can be the most puzzling to voters. Stories will be updated, and new stories may be added, as the primary election nears. Share with your friends. And for all the Current’s coverage of the 2022 election please visit our Election 2022 page.
