Who Can Vote Absentee in Nevada
- Any registered voter may request to vote by mail. To request an absent ballot, you must complete and submit an Absent Ballot Request Form to the County
Clerk/Registrar of Voters in the county where you are registered to vote. If you are a resident of Clark County, you may obtain the form from their
website at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/vote.
- The Absent Ballot Request Form must be received by your local county election official by the appropriate deadline. We recommend that you submit
your request form early to allow enough time to receive your ballot and mail your voted ballot back to your County Clerk/Registrar's office. All absent
ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted.
Early Voting in Nevada
- Early voting is easy in Nevada, and is available to every voter. Voters can vote at any location in their respective county where early voting is offered.
What If My Address Has Changed
Where can I find the number of registered voters in Nevada?
- If you moved to Nevada from another state, you must register in Nevada to be able to vote. Unless you register in person at the county clerkâs office, the last day to register in time to vote in the next election is the fifth Saturday before the election. You can also register in person at the county clerkâs office from the fifth Sunday to the third Tuesday before the election.
- If you moved from out of state, you are only eligible to register if you have been a resident of Nevada and of your county for at least thirty days, and in the precinct for at least ten days, preceding the next election in which you want to vote. But under federal law, if you move within thirty days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.
- If you moved to a new address within the state, you should complete a new registration form to update your registration records. That form is available here: http://www.nvsos.gov/SOSVoterRegForm/VoterForm.aspx
I just moved away to go to college, how do I vote in Nevada?
- If you are a student living out of state or outside your voting precinct, it may not be possible for you to get to the polls on Election Day. Your best option is to request to vote by mail or absentee ballot.
Any registered voter may request to vote by mail. To request an absentee ballot, you must complete and submit an Absentee Ballot Request Form, which may be obtained from your local County Clerk/Registrar of Voters office. Additional information on absentee voting is also available online.
