LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Early voting, which begins Saturday, will have a different feel this election year amid the pandemic and Clark County says it is making sure voters can safely vote in person or drop off their mail-in ballots.

There will be 48 voting locations open at various times during the 14 days of early voting, which lasts through Oct. 30.

According to Clark County, there will also be 125 vote centers open on Election Day on Nov. 3.

Additionally, all Clark County active registered voters were sent a mail ballot, which they can return through the regular mail using the postage-paid envelope provided or bringing it to any county ballot drop-off location.

"We have made it easy for county voters to vote by mail or in-person in this election," County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said. "Those who choose to vote by mail ballot may simply put it in the mail or bring it to an official ballot dropbox, and those who would rather vote in person at a voting machine may do so during early voting or on Election Day."

The general election ballot is the longest ever with more than 70 contests including five ballot questions.

Those planning on voting in person should use their sample ballot to prepare to vote and may want to bring their marked sample ballot with them to the voting site, according to the county.

Masks and social distancing will be required at all polling places, which will have additional staff to sanitize voting machines and other areas after each use.

Voters are encouraged to visit the Election Department website for more information.
