  • Continuously have resided in Clark County for at least 30 days before the next election
  • Continuously have resided in your precinct for at least 10 days before the next election
  • No court has declared you to be mentally incompetent
    • If you were declared mentally incompetent and your legal capacity was restored, you will not be disqualified from registering to vote because of mental incompetency.
