WHERE DO I VOTE?

 

How do I return my ballot?

 

Mail ballots must be submitted and received either by mail or dropped off in person. A physical mail ballot cannot be returned via fax or email.  It is STRONGLY recommended that voters return their ballot via the U.S. Post Office. 

To return ballots via mail, voters must:

    1. Detach and keep the Ballot Stub (if not already removed). 
    2. Seal their voted mail ballot in the pre-addressed, postage-paid, return envelope that was included in the packet they received.
    3. Sign the outside of the envelope in the space provided for a signature. There MUST be a signature that matches the signature on your voter registration form  in order for the ballot to be counted, as the signature is used for verification purposes.
      1. If a ballot is received WITHOUT a signature, the election department will send an email to the email address on file and send a letter in the mail. They will have seven days after the election (June 16) to respond. If they do not respond, their ballot will not be counted.
  • A ballot without a signature WILL NOT be accepted.
  1.  
  2. Once the envelope is signed, fold at the lines indicated, moisten the folded flag where indicated and fold over again to seal it. The sealed flap serves as a signature cover designed to protect your privacy. 
  3. Ensure the envelope is postmarked by June 9, 2020. 
    1. Per the Clark County website: a signed mail ballot envelope must be dropped off or postmarked by June 9, 2020. Note that  ballots mailed and properly postmarked by Election Day must be received by election officials by 5:00 p.m. on June 16, 2020 (7 days after the Election Day) for them to be counted.

Note: Washoe County created videos (in English and Spanish) that walk through these steps. 

 

What happens to my ballot when I mail it?

 

When the elections officials receive the voted mail ballots, they will begin a series of steps to process that ballot:

  1. A voted mail ballot (with a signature) is sent back to the voter’s appropriate county elections office.
  2. Elections workers scan the barcode on the envelope to ensure that the ballot received back is the original ballot that they had sent to that voter.
    1. Each envelope is barcoded specifically for each voter—each ballot needs to be sent back in the original envelope that was sent to the voter. In other words, do NOT mix and match envelopes or compile multiple ballots in one envelope. Do not use another envelope. 
  3. Elections workers visually verify the signature on the envelope.
    1. If a signature cannot be determined, another Elections worker will be asked to visually verify it.
      1. If they are unable to make a match after a second look, Elections workers  will do everything to “cure” the ballot (i.e. reconcile the signature by contacting the voter).
        1. The Elections office will email, call, and mail a letter to the voter.
        2. The signature is “cured” when the voter responds and verifies their information.
        3. If the voter does not respond, then their ballot will not be counted.
      2. An “X” in place of a full signature is legally accepted 
  4. Timeline for “curing” ballots:
    1. For Clark and Washoe County, the Election Department will be processing ballots for up to seven days after election (June 16).
 

Where do I drop off my ballot?

 

Drop off Locations during Early Vote

There will be drop off locations for the 14 days of Early Voting, so that voters may drop off their voted mail ballot instead of returning it via mail. These locations are generally county buildings or city halls; these sites will not be outside, so voters must go inside the building. There is no “curbside” voting in which voters can remain in their vehicles while dropping off their ballots.

Voters cannot pick up a ballot at the site, leave, and then return with their completed ballot at a listed location. Voters must receive their ballot via mail (or email, if the Election Dept. deems it appropriate) and cannot pick up a ballot anywhere.
