Along with the state offices on the ballot, Mineral County had races for Recorder, Clerk-Treasurer, Sheriff, a school board trustee seat and Hawthorne Township Constable. Polling places were open from 7 a.m to 7 p.m. at the Hawthorne Library and Tribal Community Center in Schurz. Results weren’t available until after press time.
