Voting Options - How and Where to Vote

Mail Ballot and In-Person Voting

Nevada is now an all mail-in ballot state where every active registered voter will be issued a mail-in ballot for all future elections, unless the voter chooses to "opt out" of receiving a ballot by mail.  Even if they receive a mail-in ballot, Voters can still choose to vote in person at any early voting or Election Day Vote Center. All voters who register to vote will receive their mail-in ballot no later than 14 days prior to Election Day. 

If your mail-in ballot is returned to a ballot drop box, if scanned, it is for internal logistics only. Your ballot will not be scanned into the official system until received by the Registrar of Voter office at the end of the night. For this reason, you can track your ballot starting the following day.

Lots of Options

Voters have several options in the way they prefer to cast their vote. They can mail back the actual ballot sent to them, drop off their mail-in ballot at any Vote Center/Drop Box location, or cast their vote on a voting machine in person at any Vote Center during early voting or on election day. There are also options for our military, vacationing/business travel, and oversees citizens.  For more information:
