Vote-by-Mail 101

Voting in 2020

A recent bill passed by the Nevada Legislature and signed by Governor Sisolak has moved Nevada to a vote-by-mail system with in-person voting options for the upcoming 2020 general election due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.


Here’s what you need to know!


Ballots will begin being sent to all in-state registered Nevada voters during the first week of October.


To complete your ballot:

  • Use a black or blue ink pen
  • Fill in one bubble next your candidate of choice for each office
  • You don’t have to vote for every office
  • If you change your mind or make a mistake, cross out the entire line of your original selection, and bubble in your alternative choice


Make sure you SIGN you ballot (it MUST match your signature on your voter registration form) and mail it or drop it off at any vote center in your county on or before November 3, 2020. If you vote in-person, you must either surrender your mail-in ballot or sign a form stating you will not attempt to vote twice. For more details, CLICK HERE
