Early voting for this year’s general election begins Saturday, Oct. 17, at dozens of in-person voting sites throughout the County.
There will be 48 voting locations open at various times during the 14 days of early voting, which lasts through Oct. 30. There will also be 125 vote centers open on Election Day, Nov. 3. In addition to these in-person voting options, all County active registered voters were sent a mail ballot, which they can return through the regular mail using the postage-paid envelope provided or bring to any County ballot drop-off location. Any voter who does not receive a mail ballot by Saturday, Oct. 17, but wants to vote by mail should contact the Election Department at (702) 455-VOTE (8683).
“We have made it easy for County voters to vote by mail or in person in this election,” County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said. “Those who choose to vote by mail ballot may simply put it in the mail or bring it to an official ballot drop box, and those who would rather vote in person at a voting machine may do so during early voting or on Election Day.”
Voters are encouraged to visit the Election Department website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/vote for information on a variety of topics including how to properly fill out your mail ballot, and lists of early voting and Election Day voting locations and ballot drop-off sites. (All voting locations will also be ballot drop-off sites.)
The general election ballot is the longest ever with more than 70 contests including five ballot questions. Those planning on voting in person should use their sample ballot to prepare to vote and may want to bring their marked sample ballot with them to the voting site. Masks and social distancing will be required at all polling places, which will have additional staff to sanitize voting machines and other areas after each use.
