The first 88 voters will receive a free “I Voted” mask.

For this election, County voters have the option of voting by mail ballot or in person at a regular voting machine during early voting or on Election Day.

All County active registered voters will receive a mail ballot, which can be returned through the regular mail using the postage-paid envelope provided or dropped off at one of the dozens of ballot drop-off sites such as the main Election Department building.

Any voter who does not receive a mail ballot by Oct. 17 but wants to vote by mail should contact the Election Department at (702) 455-VOTE (8683). Anyone voting by mail ballot is reminded to follow all the directions for the ballot, especially the requirement to sign the outside of the envelope provided. The signature is used to verify that the ballot was completed by the voter.

A video showing how to fill out and send in your mail ballot is available here.

Voters who prefer to vote in person at a voting machine may do so during early voting, which lasts from Oct. 17 through Oct. 30, or on Election Day, Nov. 3. A list of early voting and Election Day voting locations is also available through the department website, and every in-person voting site will also be a ballot drop-off location.

Residents are encouraged to check their voter registration status through the Registered Voter Services option on the Election Department website. County residents who are eligible to vote but not yet registered are encouraged to register to vote.

Online voter registration is available through the Secretary of State’s website.
