A poll worker lays out I Voted stickers at a polling place Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022, in Las Vegas.

The primary elections are over and it looks like predictions for U.S. Senate race, Las Vegas mayor and city council were spot on.

Senator Jacky Rosen will face Republican Sam Brown in November. There were no surprises in the races for Congress. Shelley Berkeley will face Victoria Seaman for las vegas mayor; and two las vegas city council seats were likely won outright by incumbents Brian Knudsen and Olivia Diaz.

Those races were decided by very few Nevadans. As of late Tuesday night, just 326,000 of 2 million eligible voters went to the polls. That’s 16%, the lowest turnout since at least 2010.
