Election Contests and Ballot Measures

November 4, 2014 Nevada General Election

Nevada

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

In addition to the office contest shown on our ballots, you may find county, city and local office contests like commissioner, assessor, clerk recorder, treasurer, constable, court judge, state university regent, school trustee, sheriff, mayor, and council member. Due to our limited resources we were unable to cover those contests.
