The November 3, 2020, General Election is quickly approaching, and now is the time to register to vote or confirm your voter information. Even if you believe you are already registered to vote, use the links below to confirm your information is correct and up to date. Keep in mind that mail ballots will not be forwarded to a new address if you have moved, so it is very important that your address is current in the voter registration system.  

Eligibility to register and vote: Nevada law provides that you must be 18 years of age or over, a U.S. Citizen, and a resident of Nevada for 30 days preceding any election. If you will be 18 years old or will have met the residency requirement at the time of the election, you are also eligible to register to vote. 

Find out how to update or register to vote in Nevada. If you are not from Nevada and wish to register to vote in your home state, please find and learn about your state's election registration protocol.  

The deadline information below is specific to Nevada voters.
