Voters set record numbers first 2 days of early voting

As a key swing state, Nevada's votes really count for the 2016 election. Early voting started Saturday, Oct. 22, and according to Clark County, residents hit the polls in record numbers.

Cardona said she voted Saturday for the first time in her life.
