Residents have until the end of the day Tuesday, May 24, to register to vote in the upcoming primary election.

Registration can only be done in person at a County Election Department office or online through the Nevada Secretary of State's Office's website. The Clark County Election Department offices will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday (May 23 and 24) to accommodate people who still need to register to vote. The Election Department offices are at 965 Trade Drive in North Las Vegas, and on the 1st floor of the County Government Center at 500 S. Grand Central Pkwy. in downtown Las Vegas.

Only registered voters will be allowed to cast ballots in the primary election. Early voting for the primary will be from May 28 to June 10, and primary Election Day is June 14. There are currently more than 880,000 active registered voters in Clark County.

Anyone who is unsure if they are registered to vote in Clark County should check their registration status by entering their name and other personal information in the Registered Voter Services box on the Election Department website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/vote. People without access to the Internet may call the Election Department at (702) 455-VOTE (8683).

Also, voters who signed up to receive their sample ballots via email should have already received a notification about their primary election sample ballot. If you signed up for the e-sample ballot but have not yet received an email notification, we advise that you first check any alternate email inbox folders you have. If the email notification did not arrive, please contact the Election Department at (702) 455-VOTE (8683).

Voters who are expecting to receive their primary sample ballot in the regular mail, should receive it by May 27.

Voters are encouraged to choose to receive their sample ballot via email instead of through the regular mail to help save taxpayer funds and other resources. While the deadline for the primary election has passed, voters can still sign up to get their e-sample ballot for the general election. To choose to receive your sample ballot by email, go the Election Department website, and use Registered Voter Services to log in and then select "Request My Sample Ballot Electronically (Go Green)."

Voters who need a mail/absentee ballot for the primary must submit a mail ballot request form to the Election Department by 5 p.m. June 3.
