Important dates, deadlines for Nevada voters


LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — There are several important dates for Nevada voters to keep in mind for the upcoming election.

“Each voter registration method has a different deadline,” said Wayne Thorley, Deputy Secretary of State for Elections in Nevada.

If you plan to register to vote and don’t have a driver’s license or state-issued identification you must register to vote in-person. October 6 if the last day you can do that. You can print an application here. It allows anyone without a state license or I.D. to register and vote in Nevada.

“You can use the last four of your social security number for the identification field or if you don’t have either a driver’s license or social security number, you can leave that field blank,” Thorley said.

If you have state-issued identification, you can register online to vote at this link from Oct. 7 – 29. If you are unsure whether you are registered to vote, you can find out at this link. You can also register in-person and vote on the same day during the early voting period from Oct. 17 – 30.

“Anybody who registers to vote on or before Oct. 15 will get a ballot sent to them in the mail,” Thorley said. “Anybody registers to vote after October 15, so starting on October 16 must vote in person.”

There are 35 early voting sites around Clark County where you can vote or drop off your mail-in ballot. Here is a link to that list.

Those who miss the deadlines can still register to vote on the Secretary of State website or at a polling place.

“The DMV has set up on Saturday’s in the morning, appointments for new residents only to obtain a drivers license or ID card in Nevada,” Thorley said.

All online registration will come to an end on Oct. 29. Anyone with a Nevada license or ID can also learn to vote on Nov. 3, Election Day.

Mail-in ballots are being sent to all registered Nevada residents this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Ballots are expected to start being mailed out on Oct. 10.
