LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Drop off your ballot, get a free flu shot while supplies last, and sample food from a local food truck Oct. 23 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Mountain’s Edge Regional Park in a ballot drop-off celebration sponsored by Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones.

Clark County Election Department officials will be on-hand to accept the ballots. Sponsoring the event with the commissioner are Immunize Nevada and NextGen Nevada.

“Voting is an important responsibility, and this is a convenient way for voters to securely drop off their ballots and enjoy some live music and good food at the same time,” said Commissioner Jones.

Mail ballots for the coming general election have been sent to all active registered voters in Clark County. Any voter who does not receive a mail ballot but wants to vote by mail should contact the Election Department at (702) 455-VOTE (8683).

For this election, County voters have the option of (1) voting by mail ballot, (2) in person at a regular voting machine during early voting through Oct. 30 or (3) on Election Day Nov. 3.

Those voting by mail ballot may send it to the Election Department through the regular mail using the postage-paid envelope provided or bring their mail ballot to a ballot drop-off site.

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 at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/vote. 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.
