Mail ballots for the coming general election are being sent to all active registered voters in Clark County this week and next.

Voters should receive their mail ballots by Oct. 17. 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).

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.


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.

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.

Most voters have already received a sample ballot from the County, and with more than 70 contests on the ballot including five ballot questions, voters should use their sample ballot to prepare to vote. Those who will be voting in person are encouraged to note their selections on their sample ballot and bring it to the polling place with them. 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 at www.RegisterToVoteNV.gov.
