JUNE 9, 2020, ALL-MAIL BALLOT PRIMARY ELECTION (FEDERAL/STATE)
To help keep you, your family and our community safer by limiting interactions that could spread the coronavirus, the 2020 Primary Election will be an all-mail ballot election, meaning all active registered voters will automatically receive a mail ballot through the U.S. Postal Service. Limited in-person voting will be available for same-day registration (registering and voting on the same day after the standard close of registration), immediate same-day updates of existing registration (name, party, and address), and voters with disabilities.

A Primary Election is a preliminary (nominating) election to select, when necessary, Democratic, Republican, and nonpartisan candidates who will run in the General Election contests (except special district candidates as they only appear in the General Election). The direct vote of the people selects the candidates, rather than votes of convention delegates. Nevada has CLOSED Primary Elections (NRS 293.257). The Primary Election must be held on the second Tuesday in June of each even-numbered year (NRS 293.175(1)).

Starting in 2020, you may: (1) Register in-person and vote a provisional ballot (same-day registration), but you must show a current and valid (unexpired) Nevada’s Driver’s License or Nevada State Identification card with the current address where you actually live, or if the address is not current, you must additionally provide other proof of residence; or (2) Immediately update your existing registration, including name, party, and address changes, and then vote a provisional ballot for your new precinct and/or party, as applicable. (Sections 5.9, 8, and 9 of AB345 of the 2019 Legislative Session).
