Primary to decide who will be Washoe’s next employee | SehndeWeb

Whoever gets the most votes in the primary for Washoe County Clerk will be the only name on the November ballot and therefore the ultimate winner.

The three candidates running are Republicans. Due to Nevada’s closed primary system, if you’re not a Republican, you won’t have a say in who the next Washoe County Clerk is.

Incumbent Jan Galassini faces Randy Amestoy, who worked in the clerk’s office for more than 20 years, as well as newcomer Kenji Otto.
