Voters in Clark County are getting a new option.

For the first time, registered voters can choose to have a sample ballot emailed to them. During an election year, Clark County sends more than 800,000 sample ballots. 

In 2014, all the printing and mailing for the sample ballots was worth about $1.5 million -- a bill footed by the Clark County taxpayers. 

Officials hope this new option saves money and trees.

"I believe Nevada is on the forefront of what we're doing here electronically. The other counties in Nevada will also be trying to provide the same service," said Joe Gloria, the Clark County registrar of voters.

It takes just a few minutes to opt-in on the county's website.
