HAVE QUESTIONS ON VOTING DURING COVID-19?
Voting by mail is secure and convenient, and helps keep you and your community safe. We encourage voters to return their ballot ASAP, either by mail or by dropping it off at one of the many drop-off locations across the state.
However, if you do not wish to vote by mail, or drop off your completed ballot at a designated location, you can vote in person during the Early Vote period (Oct. 17 – 30, 2020) or on Election Day (Nov. 3, 2020). If you do choose to vote in person, we encourage doing so during the early voting period (October 17-30), ideally during that first week of early voting, to minimize wait times.
During this pandemic, we need to make sure our votes and our voices count! And for millions of people, this means voting by mail for the first time.
See the Frequently Asked Questions below for more information!
You should receive your ballot sometime between late September and Oct. 14, 2020.
If you have NOT received your ballot in the mail by Wednesday, Oct. 14, contact your county Elections Department immediately to receive a replacement ballot electronically (calling directly is recommended) or make an alternative plan to vote in person during the Early Vote period (Oct. 17 – 30, 2020) or on Election Day (Nov. 3, 2020). The last day to request a replacement ballot is Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2020.
Although it is encouraged for your health and the health and safety of others, you are not required to vote by mail. You may still vote in person during the Early Vote period (Oct. 17 – 30, 2020) or on Election Day (Nov. 3, 2020).
If you choose to vote in person, you will be required to surrender your mail-in ballot OR sign an affirmation that you will not vote using your mail-in ballot.
You may also complete your mail-in ballot at home and drop it off at one of the drop-off locations designated by your county elections department, beginning as early as Sept. 28th (depending on your county).
All ballots postmarked by Election Day (Nov. 3, 2020) will be counted. However, to ensure that your ballot is counted in a timely manner, we recommend mailing your ballot by Monday, Oct. 26, 2020.
After Oct. 26th we highly recommend voters drop off their ballot instead of sending it back in the mail.
There will be drop-off locations for at least 14 days of Early Voting so that voters may drop off their completed mail ballot instead of returning it via mail.
Millions of voters are choosing to vote by mail this election because it is safe, secure, and reliable. You can even track your ballot by visiting your county Elections Department website.
Once your ballot is received, it is securely stored until it is counted. Nevada’s election management system (EMS) only allows one ballot to be assigned (using a barcode) to one voter at a time and offers many layers of security to ensure votes are counted.
All mail ballots must be returned in the authorized ballot return envelope provided, which must be signed by the voter.
Signature verification is performed on every ballot received. If the signature is missing or if the signature on the ballot return envelope does not match the signature on file for the voter, the ballot will not be counted until the voter verifies their signature.
Absolutely! Once you’ve completed your mail-in ballot and submitted it through the mail or an official drop-off location, you can track its progress.

You are allowed to collect and mail or drop off ballots for other voters. However, the ballot must be sealed and signed by the intended voter on the authorized ballot return envelope. This signature is used to authenticate the voter and confirm that it was actually the voter and not another person who completed the mail ballot.
If you are not currently incarcerated, your right to vote in Nevada has been restored. Any individual who was formerly incarcerated in any state and is a Nevada resident, at least 18 years old, and meets all the registration eligibility requirements, is eligible to register and vote.

There are several ways to verify your voter registration status, update your address or other information, or register to vote (though we recommend using the county-specific portal to check your status):
Official election mail, such as sample ballots and your official mail ballot, CANNOT be forwarded by the USPS. To receive your mail-in ballot at the location where you currently are staying, you must update the MAILING address associated with your voter registration.
The last day for registered voters to update your mailing address AND receive a regular mail ballot in time to vote in this election is Thursday Oct. 15, 2020.
