LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- More than 55,000 Clark County voters have cast their ballots with a few hours yet to go in the second day of the early voting period.

Clark County Registrar Larry Lomax provided the total late this afternoon.

"It's not as heavy as Saturday was, but it's still a solid number," Lomax said while making rounds to about 25 sites open Sunday for voting.

On Saturday, more than 32,000 ballots were cast, easily surpassing the 25,100 votes logged on the first day of early voting in 2008.

County officials say they expect about 400,000 votes to be cast by the close of early voting on Nov. 2, four days before the Nov. 6 vote.

There are 852,000 registered voters in the county. About 20 to 25 places will be open each day for early voting, generally from 9 a.m. to 6 or 7 p.m.

Lomax said that voters can speed the voting process by knowing the candidates they are going to vote for, checking to make sure they are registered before they go to the polls and reading the sample ballot they should have received in the mail.
