LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Deadlines for voters to register to cast a ballot in the November General Election are getting closer for the Clark County electorate.

Oct. 6 marks two significant deadlines for voters and military personnel.

After Tuesday, voters will no longer be able to register to vote or update their registration information in-person at the Election Department.

Military and overseas voters also have to postmark their Federal Post Card Applications by Oct. 6 to be eligible to apply for a mail-in or absentee ballot.

Up to Oct. 15 voters can register online directly with the Secretary of State's Office in order to vote in the November election, and if they register online after that date they will have to fill out a provisional ballot at an in-person polling location during early voting or Election Day.

After this deadline, voters who register with the SOS online will be forced to fill out a provisional ballot at an in-person voting location.


The final registration option available to voters is a same-day registration at one of 35 early voting sites in Clark County from Oct. 17-30, or at one of 125 in-person voting locations on Election Day.

Same-day registration requires the voter to provide poll workers with a valid unexpired ID card with a listed address that matches their current living situation.

Same-day online registration to vote with a provisional ballot ends on Oct. 29.
