Candidate Filing Period Begins Monday

          The candidate filing period for non-judicial offices in Clark County begins Monday, March 2, and lasts through March 13.


          The Election Department will be accepting candidate filing paperwork from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays during that period in the Pueblo Room on the 1st floor of the Clark County Government Center at 500 Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas. This filing period does not apply to judicial candidates who were required to file in January.


          Candidates are required to appear in person to pay the filing fee, show identification and complete, verify and sign their filing forms. Additional information for candidates is available through the Election Department website at


          The 2020 primary election is on June 9, with early voting from May 23 to June 5. The general election is Nov. 3, with early voting from Oct. 17-30. If only one candidate files from his/her party in a partisan contest, then that candidate will automatically appear on the general election ballot. Residents are encouraged to check their voter registration status to make sure they will be able to vote in the elections. To check your registration status, enter your personal information in the Registered Voter Services box on the Election Department website. Residents who are eligible to vote but not yet registered are encouraged to register.


          Voters are also reminded to help save County taxpayers more than $1.5 million this election season by choosing to receive their sample ballot by email instead of through the regular mail. Every election year, the County spends more than $1.5 million and uses more than 50 tons of paper and other resources to print and mail sample ballots. But now voters can now choose to receive their sample ballots by email and help save taxpayers' money and more than 1,000 trees. To choose to receive your sample ballot by email, go the Election Department website at, enter your name and other information in the Registered Voter Services box, click "log-in" and then select "Request My Sample Ballot Electronically (Go Green)" from the dropdown menu under "Voter Services." During the 2016 election more than 15,000 voters chose to receive an email sample ballot, saving taxpayers more than $30,000 that year.
