If you’ve never voted by mail before, don’t worry – it’s easy. Plus, you get to avoid lines while keeping your fellow Nevadans and poll workers safe and healthy.
In partnership with the 17 counties in Nevada, the 2020 primary election will be conducted by mail. To complete your ballot and cast your vote, here’s what you need to know.
A ballot will be sent to the mailboxes of all active registered voters in Nevada in early May. Be sure to check your voter registration and address online prior to May 21. If you’re not yet a registered voter, you can register online up until May 21 in order to receive a ballot by mail. Each county will send the ballot on a unique schedule, but you should expect to have your ballot in hand by May 16.
Each county ballot is a little bit different, but the steps for completion and mailing are generally the same. If you have further questions or need additional help, please contact your county election office. You can also review a list of important upcoming dates for this election.
