Nevada holds Closed Primary Elections
In Nevada, two political parties - Democratic and Republican - are considered major parties for the purpose of conducting elections. Nevada primary elections are "closed," which means if you are registered to vote with a party affiliation of either Democratic or Republican, you may vote only for candidates from your own party and you may also vote in nonpartisan contests. Voters registered with any other party affiliation (or none) may vote only in nonpartisan contests. Ballot questions are not voted on in the primary election.
In the general election in November, all voters get to choose from among all candidates who are running for their local, statewide, and federal offices and on ballot measures.
