Clark County Election Department offices will be open extended hours this weekend plus Monday and Tuesday to give residents more time to register to vote ahead of next week's deadlines.
The Election Department offices at 965 Trade Drive in North Las Vegas, and on the 1st floor of the County Government Center at 500 S. Grand Central Parkway in downtown Las Vegas, will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Both offices will also be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.
Prospective voters have until 9 p.m. Tuesday to register to vote at an Election Department office. After that, online voter registration will be available until midnight Thursday, Oct. 18, through the Nevada Secretary of State's website at www.RegisterToVoteNV.gov.
The election is on Nov. 6, with early voting from Oct. 20 to Nov. 2.
Residents are encouraged to check their voter registration status to make sure they will be able to vote in the election. To check your registration status, enter your personal information in the Registered Voter Services box on the Election Department website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/vote.
As in the recent primary election, voters going to the polls on Election Day will cast their ballots at vote centers instead of assigned polling places. Vote centers operate similarly to early voting polling places in that any voter will be able to vote at any vote center, regardless of where they live in the County. This change is expected to make voting more convenient for voters. The switch to using vote centers also allowed the County to eliminate mail-ballot districts. In previous elections, voters living in some outlying precincts were automatically sent mail ballots because they did not have a designated polling place. Now those voters will be able to cast their ballots at any vote center, just like every other voter in the County. Voters in those outlying precincts who still want to vote by mail ballot may request a mail ballot. The deadline to request a mail ballot for this election is Oct. 30.
