Supporters cheer President Barack Obama as he speaks during a campaign event Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012 at Doolittle Park. An estimated 13,000 turned out for his ninth visit to Nevada this year.

Updated Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012 | 6:24 p.m.

President Barack Obama's rally Thursday in North Las Vegas – despite the continuing problems on the Eastern Seaboard related to Superstorm Sandy – may begin earlier than expected.

Obama is scheduled to speak Thursday at the Cheyenne Sports Complex, 3500 E. Cheyenne Avenue, near the Cheyenne campus of the College of Southern Nevada. The Obama campaign has not yet announced the time for the rally, but now says doors will open at 11:30 a.m., two hours earlier than the time announced in news releases Monday.

The president's latest visit to the valley comes just six days before Election Day, and one day before early voting ends in Nevada. Both the Obama and Romney campaigns have been promoting early voting in key battleground states, such as Nevada.

The "grassroots event" is free and open to the public, but tickets are required for entrance. One ticket per person will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at seven locations Tuesday and ending Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Ticket locations are as follows:

• College of Southern Nevada-Cheyenne (open until 9 p.m.); June Whitley Student Center, 3200 E. Cheyenne Ave., North Las Vegas

• Green Valley OFA-NV Field Office (open until 9 p.m.); 2925 Green Valley Pkwy., Henderson

• East Las Vegas Community Center (open until 9 p.m.); 250 N. Eastern Ave., Las Vegas

• OFA-NV Summerlin Field Office (open until 9 p.m.); 7469 W. Lake Mead Blvd., suite 170, Las Vegas

• Lone Mountain Plaza; trailer in parking lot; northwest corner of West Lone Mountain Road & North Decatur Boulevard, North Las Vegas

• Doolittle Community Center; 1950 J St., Las Vegas

• Cardenas Market (open until 7 p.m.); 4421 East Bonanza Rd., Las Vegas.

  1. My best carny voice,"Hurry Hurry step right up! See the Obama/Biden show jam packed with lies, cover ups, and petty attacks!"
    "Hurry people you do not want to miss this show! It is for a limited time and will never be seen again after November 6th!"
    "See soon to be citizen Obama perform feats of illusion and distraction! Watch as he amazes the rubes with his tall tales from his magic teleprompter!"
    "Hurry people this show will be over in just a week and The Amazing Obama and his sideshow freak The Blundering Boob Biden will be retired after these performances. Book now seats are limited!"

  2. Good news people the clown is still coming to town. He is going to swing by the Jersey Shore then head back to Lake Las Vegas.
    Nothing will keep this humanitarian from doing what is right. He will fly by all the people on the east coast freezing and seeing there homes destroyed. I heard he might even wave at them as he flies out here.
