Amanda Wester wrote in asking about the recent court decision striking down the "None of the Above" option on the ballot. She wants to know what happens if she does not vote for any candidate in a certain race. Will her ballot still be counted ?
According to Catherine Lu and Scott Gilles with the Nevada Secretary of State's office, your ballot will still be counted even if you do not cast a vote in a certain race. You do not have to vote in every race that appears on your ballot.
However, if you do skip one, you will see an electronic message at the end telling you that you did not vote for a certain race. Lu says some people have interpreted that as direction that they must go back and vote in the races in which they did not select a candidate, but they want you to keep in mind that is only a reminder notice that is required by federal law.
Again-- you do not have to vote in every race and your ballot will still be counted.
