The June 9 primary is being conducted mostly by mail, a new experience for many Nevada voters. If you are wondering about security, the state has put in place several safeguards to ensure every vote is validated and counted.

But if a voter forgets to sign a ballot or if the signature does not match the state voter files, what then? Deputy Secretary of State for Elections Wayne Thorley talked with The Nevada Independent’s Joey Lovato to explain how to “cure” a signature error for a mail-in ballot.
