How do I vote?
- Sign it. Mail it. Drop it. Vote it.
- If you are using your vote by mail ballot, you must sign the back of the envelope!
- Vote by mail ballots are being sent to every active registered voter.
- If you haven’t yet received your mail ballot, contact your county elections department: Call your County Registrar or Clerk here.
- You can mail your ballot through the USPS or take it to an official drop off location.
- You can have your family member or friend deliver it to a mailbox or drop off locations.
- Make sure they deliver within 3 days and no later than November 3 at 7 p.m.
- Everyone who is registered can choose to vote in-person during Early Voting, October 17-October 30, or on Election Day, November 3 (you must be in line on Election Day by 7 p.m.). Find your polling or drop off location on iwillvote.com.
Where do I vote?
- Some polling locations have changed since the last election. Know where to go – find your polling location at iwillvote.com.
Do I need identification to vote?
- Basically, NO.
- If you are a newly registered voter, who registered after October 15, or who is registering on the same day as you are voting, you will need to have a valid Nevada DMV ID.
- A license that expired after March 11 is valid through November 12, by order of the DMV.
- An “Interim Document” from the DMV, received upon application for an identification, is also sufficient.
- If you are a newly registered voter, who registered before October 6, and did not provide identification when registering, you will need to provide a valid photo identification.
- Valid identification includes those issued by a Nevada university or college, Nevada state or federal government agencies, and tribal identification, among others. Generally, it will be fine if it is valid and has your photo.
- If it has an address that is no longer accurate, you will need a utility bill, bank statement, paycheck stub, or other document that has your registered address on it.
Can I see a sample ballot?
- Yes. All voters should get a sample ballot in the mail by mid-October.
- Also, you can view a sample ballot online at your county’s election department website.
- Clark County: Voter Services page
- Washoe County: Sample ballot information
- Rural Counties: Look up their County Clerk’s information
How should I fill out my ballot?
- Use a blue or black pen to fill in the oval for the candidate you’re voting for.
- DO NOT use felt tip pens or permanent markers.
- Mark your choices in each contest or question by completely filling in the oval to the right of each of your ballot choices.
- If you make a mistake, simply cross out the name of the candidate you mistakenly voted for. Fill in the oval next to the correct candidate.
- If you choose to vote on some candidates or questions and not others, your ballot will be counted for those you have voted on. This will not invalidate your ballot.
- If you mark more choices than permitted in a single contest, no vote will be counted for that contest but the rest of your correctly marked ballot will be counted.
- Do not make any stray or identifying marks on the ballot itself.
- Put only your ballot inside the secrecy sleeve and then the provided envelope. Make sure your ballot goes back in the envelope that was mailed to YOU, not to someone else in your household. Then seal and sign where indicated!
- Make sure to sign the back of the envelope using the same signature as the one you used when you registered to vote.
