Henderson residents can cast their vote today from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at any of 12 Vote Center locations throughout the city for the Primary Election. Vote Centers replace traditional precinct polling locations pre-assigned to registered voters. Henderson voters have the option of voting at numerous locations, allowing more flexibility and convenience when exercising their right to vote. 

"It's always one of our priorities to encourage voter participation during the Municipal Election," City Clerk Sabrina Mercadante said.

Through the use of Vote Centers, our citizens can conveniently cast their ballot to elect the leaders of their community."

Vote Centers were introduced in Henderson in the 2007 municipal election.

Cox On DEMAND Launches Election Info Area

Cox On DEMAND Launches Election Info Area

In an effort to help voters understand more about the candidates for mayoral, city council and city ward races in Clark County during the upcoming election, Cox Communications-Las Vegas and Cox Media launched Elections 2011 On DEMAND.

The current election cycle involves candidates from Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas.

Elections 2011 On DEMAND provides the means for voters to view a two-minute, educational “candidate vignette” on its On DEMAND platform via Cox Channel 1. The company’s News and Public Affairs department is providing all candidates with an opportunity to speak frankly about their candidacy or any issues. However, as opposed to the more common 30-second political television spot, the On DEMAND vignettes may not contain references to other candidates or political campaigns.
