Nevada political roundup: Election Day edition

Happy Election Day, and welcome to another edition of Early Line, brought to you from Carson City.

Molly Ball has a story that says Nevada might set a new record for low turnout.

Here's a cringe-inducing quote from Clark County Registrar Larry Lomax: "We've had lots of voters come to vote, get in the booth and be surprised president isn't on there," Lomax said. "We hope they'll come back in November."

So who is on the ballot?

For your perusing pleasure, here's a rundown of election guides:

-- Las Vegas Sun

-- Review-Journal

-- Reno Gazette-Journal

Why does it matter to be informed, even when there are no high-profile races for most voters?

Exhibit 1. State Board of Education Member Greg "Bite Me" Nance. Here's Emily Richmond's story in the Sun about him resigning. Here's Sunday's story from the R-J about Nance canoodling with his new wife at a board meeting.
