With the primary election day approaching, many Pershing constituents are looking forward to hearing what each candidate has to offer the office they are running for. This is made a little easier this year with three candidate forums being held throughout the county.

The Grass Valley Advisory Board is holding a candidate's night on April 28 at 7 p.m. in the new Grass Valley Community Center, 13295 Grass Valley Road.

The evening is dedicated only to local Pershing County candidates, including Sixth Judicial District judge's seat candidates. Each candidate will be given five minutes to speak and then will answer questions from the audience.

The Imlay Town Advisory Board will hold a candidate forum on May 12, at 7 p.m. at the Imlay Community Center, 325 E. Star Peak Dr. Star Peak Drive is the frontage road on the south side of the I-80 highway, from the Imlay exit. This also is a forum for just local candidates, including Sixth Judicial District judge's seat candidates.

"We want to make sure the people can meet the candidates and make informed decisions on election day," Imlay Town Advisory Board Chair Brenda Pinkston said.

The third candidate forum is sponsored by the Lovelock Review-Miner and Winnemucca Publishing. It will take place in Lovelock at the Pershing County Community Center on May 15 at 5:30 p.m. Candidates will be given time to speak on their behalf and answer questions from the audience.

"As a news outlet our job is to inform the public. We want to give Pershing County residents another way to get informed about their candidates and the issues," Winnemucca Publishing General Manager Holly Rudy-James said.

Rudy-James said the paper will sponsor another candidate night for state candidates some time after the primary election in a location central to Pershing, Humboldt and Lander counties.

The primary election will take place on June 10. Residents have until May 20 to register to vote or change anything on their current registration. Changes and registering for the first time can be done in person at the Pershing County Clerk / Treasurer Office, 398 Main St., Lovelock, or online at the Nevada Secretary of State website www.nvsos.gov.
