From the Ask Joe file, several people wrote in with questions about Tuesday's primary election.
One of them was Lynette Cook Bellin, who said she was livid to discover that even though her mailing address is Reno, she was not permitted to vote for mayor or any of the Reno City Council races.
Lynette lives by Galena High School, outside of city limits, but she thinks it may be time to reconsider the boundary lines.
Joe checked with Luann Cutler, the Washoe County Registrar, who said she gets questions about the issue, too.
Cutler said it is a black and white issue. You either live within city limits or you don't, and if you don't, you cannot vote in those races. Even if your mailing address is Reno.
She points out that those in the city pay higher taxes for the services they receive, compared to those who live in the county area. That is one reason why the lines cannot be crossed.
But as far as changing the boundary lines, that is not a decision the registrar would be able to make. It could only happen if the City voted to annex the property.
So if you are concerned, it is an issue you might want to take up with a council member, or somebody at the City of Reno to find out if it would be possible down the road.
