  • Continuously have resided in Clark County for at least 30 days and in your precinct for at least 10 days before the next election

  • Claim no other place as your legal residence

    • Tip:  Convicted felons who have been honorably discharged from probation or parole, pardoned by the Governor or released from prison may be eligible to vote, depending on various factors, and should call (702) 455-0075 for specific information about their individual situation.

  • No court of law has determined you are mentally incompetent
