Field Registrars

Last Updated December 23, 2018


Field Registrars are volunteers trained by the Election Department to register qualified voters on behalf of the Registrar of Voters.  Field Registrars cannot engage in partisan activities while representing the Election Department.


To become a Field Registrar, you must:

  • Be a registered voter in Clark County
  • Not be a candidate for nomination or election
  • Not be laboring under any felony conviction or other loss of civil rights
  • Have photo identification
  • Successfully complete Field Registrar training


Prospective Field Registrars must attend about two hours of training on the lawful conduct of their activities, including:

  • Policies, procedures and restrictions 
  • Deadlines
  • Custody of registration materials

Applicants must pass a brief written examination at the end of the training session. Successful applicants must sign a Field Registrar Oath and will receive an identification badge to wear while registering voters.

All existing Field Registrar badges expire JUNE 30, 2021. To continue as a Field Registrar you are required to obtain a new field registrar badge and update your information. Please contact Brenda Cotton at (702) 455-0076 or  If you do not make arrangements to pick up your updated badge, your status as a field registrar will be made inactive and you will not be able to register voters as a field registrar.


Groups and organizations that wish to register voters, but do not want to become Field Registrars, may obtain mail-in Voter Registration Applications for registration drives, upon meeting certain conditions. These groups may make arrangements to attend a mail-in Voter Registration Application distribution class in lieu of a field registrar class. Call (702) 455-0076 for more details.  The class schedule is available in a PDF format.
