Over the past several months, Pew collected data about the 2012 presidential election from nearly every state and the District of Columbia. We used the findings to create a snapshot of each jurisdiction, focusing on how many people voted, how long they waited to cast their ballots, how they cast them, and how many ballots were not counted. These snapshots will be released over the coming months, five at a time, and the Election Data Dispatches will take a closer look at the latest snapshots each week.
Nearly 70 percent of all ballots in Nevada were cast before Election Day, mostly during two weeks of in-person early voting. Data from the secretary of state show the two most popular days of in-person early voting were the first day, with nearly 50,000 ballots cast, and the last day, with almost 70,000 cast.
