Supporters cheer President Barack Obama as he speaks during a campaign event Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012 at Doolittle Park. An estimated 13,000 turned out for his ninth visit to Nevada this year.

President Barack Obama's rally Thursday in North Las Vegas – despite the continuing problems on the Eastern Seaboard related to Superstorm Sandy – may begin earlier than expected.

Obama is scheduled to speak Thursday at the Cheyenne Sports Complex, 3500 E. Cheyenne Avenue, near the Cheyenne campus of the College of Southern Nevada. The Obama campaign has not yet announced the time for the rally, but now says doors will open at 11:30 a.m., two hours earlier than the time announced in news releases Monday.

The president's latest visit to the valley comes just six days before Election Day, and one day before early voting ends in Nevada. Both the Obama and Romney campaigns have been promoting early voting in key battleground states, such as Nevada.

The "grassroots event" is free and open to the public, but tickets are required for entrance. One ticket per person will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at seven locations Tuesday and ending Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Ticket locations are as follows:

• College of Southern Nevada-Cheyenne (open until 9 p.m.); June Whitley Student Center, 3200 E. Cheyenne Ave., North Las Vegas

• Green Valley OFA-NV Field Office (open until 9 p.m.); 2925 Green Valley Pkwy., Henderson
