Assisted Mail/Absentee Ballot Voting for Persons with Disabilities

When to Submit a Request
Per NRS 293.3165, if, because of a physical disability, you cannot sign your name, or are unable to mark or sign a ballot or use a voting device without assistance, you may request a mail/absentee ballot for all elections during the calendar year by the mail/absentee ballot request deadline (the Tuesday before Election Day, June 7, 2018, 5 p.m.).  If you miss that deadline, you may request an "emergency ballot" for a specific election no later than 5 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, June 14, 2016.  

Request Requirements
The ballot must be requested in writing from the Election Department and you must meet the requirements described below.  Faxed or scanned ballot requests are acceptable.  You may not request an emergency ballot on behalf of another registered voter, even with Power of Attorney. Your request must include:

  • Your name as it appears on the your Voter Registration Application;

  • Your Clark County Residence;

  • The name and address of the person designated to assist you in marking and signing your ballot; and

  • The designee's signature

NOTE: The person designated to assist you in marking and signing your ballot, must indicate next to his/her signature on the envelope for the voted mail/absentee ballot that the ballot has been marked and signed on your behalf.
