How to Vote in Nevada
By Abby Ocampo
Are you eligible to vote in Nevada?
In order to vote in the state of Nevada, you have to be registered to vote.
Once registered, voters have the option of either voting in person or by using an absentee ballot.
In Nevada, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, state officials are allowed to send voting ballots by mail to all active registered voters. A registered voter is considered to be someone who has confirmed where they live and have at least voted once in the last two federal elections.
Voters can also request an absentee ballot by Oct. 20, 2020. An absentee ballot is a ballot that is sent to a voter outside of a polling place.
All absentee ballots must have the signature verified and be returned in the original envelope to either your registrar of voters/county clerk or at any in person polling place by Election Day on Nov. 3, 2020 7 PM.
If voters choose to vote in person on voting day, they may do so at any of the polling places available in their county on Nov. 3, 2020 from 7AM to 7PM.
Early Voting in Nevada
Nevada also offers early voting for registered voters from Oct. 17 to Oct. 30, 2020 at any polling place in their county that offers early voting.
