Stage is set for Nov. 5 general election

Voters can register for the general election until Oct. 5.

Carson City voters in the general election will vote in four local races. They will choose between Kenny Furlong and Bob Guimont for sheriff, Dave Dawley and Taunya Milligan for assessor, Alan Glover and Mary Ann Dickens for clerk/recorder, Pete Livermore and Neil Weaver for Ward 3 supervisor, Ron Knecht and Stacie Wilkie for Assembly District 40 and Tom Grady and Joe Dini, Jr., for Assembly District 38.

The names of Ward 1 Supervisor Robin Williamson, District Attorney Noel Waters and Treasurer Al Kramer will appear on the ballot, but they are all running unopposed and need just one vote to retain their offices.

Early voting for the general election starts Oct. 19 and ends Nov. 1.

Two questions will appear on the city's ballot.

Carson City Question 1 will read, "While retaining and improving the area known as Fuji Park, should Carson City make available for commercial development City property known as the Carson City Fairgrounds?"

Carson City Question 2 will read, "Shall the Carson City School District be authorized to issue up to $3.75 million in general obligation bonds for the purposes of mitigating the impact of toxic mold and creating safer and more efficient schools by replacing, improving, acquiring, constructing and equipping school facilities? The bonds are expected to require a property tax levy for 20 years. Due to the retirement of outstanding bonds and projected assessed value growth, passage of this question is not expected to result in an increase in the existing property tax rate levied to pay the school district's bonds."

Nine state questions will appear on the ballot, including Question 9, the controversial legalized marijuana question, and Question 2, which would recognize marriage in Nevada as only between a man and a woman.
