Easier and Faster Voting

Sample Ballots are being mailed prior to the first day of Early Voting, October 20, 2018.  Voting will be EASIER for you and FASTER for everyone if you study, mark, and bring your sample ballot with you when you vote. Do not wait until you are in the voting booth to review the information. Per NRS 293.565 (7), if a person registers to vote less than 20 days before the date of an election, the county clerk is not required to distribute to the person the sample ballot for that election by mail or electronic means.

Go Green with Electronic Sample Ballots
E-sample ballots were emailed and a sample of your ballot is available online through “Registered Voter Services”.
