LAST ELECTION TEST - NO WINNERS WILL BE CALLED.

This advisory will be updated throughout the testing period. Zeros will be transmitted after testing on the eve of the election.

Race calls: AP will make race calls on election night unless a race is too close to call. Race calls will be made during testing, except on the day of the final test.

Races and candidates are considered preliminary. AP will advise when they are final.

Statewide and race-specific precinct totals in early tests are considered preliminary. AP will advise when they are final.

Uncontested races: AP does not tabulate uncontested races. A list of races, NV-Uncontested, will move to premium service subscribers at ftp://electionsonline.ap.org/NV/anpa/ and to state news and broadcast services after the last polls close.

Winners: AP will move a list of unofficial winners at the end of tabulation and during each test, except on the final day of testing. A list of winners, NV-Winners will move to premium services at ftp://electionsonline.ap.org/NV/anpa/.

End of tabulation: AP will advise when its election night tabulation of results has concluded, generally before 6 p.m. the day after the election.

TESTING BASICS:

Test results are created electronically to test the accuracy of the election night reporting system and do not reflect an expectation of election results. They should not be broadcast, published, replicated or posted on websites.

It is vital to read weekly advisories during testing. Advisories move to news service advisory queues. Advisories note updates to candidates, races and precincts, along with the date when updates will appear. Changes may be made up to Election Day.

AP advises capture of each test during the testing period and particularly during the final test on the day before the election to ensure readiness to take results on Election Day.

Report frequency in testing may not reflect the actual election night schedule. As example, county tables for contested

U.S. House races move to Member Choice subscribers in each test but will move just twice on election night.
