In an effort to inform voters, the Las Vegas Review-Journal publishes election special sections like this one, which has information about the races to be decided in Clark County, the state of Nevada and the nation, and the candidates in those races.
Voters can get the most out of this general election guide by first referring to the sample ballot mailed to them by the Clark County Election Department. Voters should find which races they will be voting in and then read the stories that pertain to those races.
In each of the stories, incumbents are designated in their bios with an asterisk (*) after their names. Appointed incumbents have two.
Candidates were given the opportunity to have their pictures taken at the Review-Journal. Those whose photos do not appear either did not respond or declined to be photographed.
District maps are provided to help readers identify which offices serve them. For exact boundaries, access the election map website at www.accessclarkcounty.com/elections/ and click on Political Subdivision Maps.
