Those who don’t have a Nevada driver’s license or state-issued identification — for example those who have recently moved to the state — must register to vote in-person or by mail by Oct. 6.

You can print an application to register to vote here. Once the application is complete, print two copies, one should be signed and mailed to the local election official in your county and the second copy should be kept as a receipt. For assistance completing the form, you can call the Nevada Secretary of State’s Elections Division at (775) 684-5705.

Paper registration forms are also available and can be picked up in person at your local registrar of voters or county clerk’s office. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you should call ahead to check whether it’s possible to go to the office in person. 

For people who have a Nevada driver’s license or Nevada ID, there is still additional time to register to vote.

Voters with a Nevada driver’s license or Nevada ID can register online until Oct. 29. They can also register in person at a polling place during early voting, which runs Oct. 17 – 30, or on Election Day, Nov. 3. In order to receive a mail ballot, voters needs to register online by midnight on Oct. 15, according to the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office. Anyone who registers to vote after Oct. 15 will be required to vote in person at a polling place during early voting or on Election Day.

If you are unsure whether you are registered to vote, or if you need to update your current voter registration information, you can do it at this link.

Early voting and Election Day polling locations for all counties can be found here.
