Early voting in Lyon County

I must say I am a bit disappointed again with the early vote schedule for Lyon County. Early voting kicks of on Saturday, July 29th...that is, if you want to travel all the way to Yerington. AND...You can only only vote on Saturday if you are willing to make the trek to Yerington. If you live anywhere else in the county and you work a 8-5 job, you will just have to wait until August 15th when the polls will be open before and after working hours. Silver Springs is completely left out in the cold for a polling place for early voting. I wonder when the folks down south are going to notice that the bulk of the Lyon County population is up here in the north?

Here's the official notice from the Clerk/Treasurer's office:
