RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The start of this year's primary election is now less than 24 hours away; and the Nevada Secretary of State's Office reports a light turnout during the two-week early voting period.

A mere 10.5% of registered voters turned out in Washoe County, with more republicans than democrats in attendance.

Reports also indicate turnout was higher outside Nevada's two major urban areas; Pershing County led the state with 31% of voters turning out, followed by Carson City at 20%, and Douglas County at 16.2%.

The Secretary of State's Office says statewide results will be released later Monday once data from all Nevada's 17 counties is compiled.
