What if I don’t get my ballot in the mail?
You should receive your ballot by Oct. 17 at the latest. If you don’t receive your ballot by Oct. 17, you should:
- First, check that your residential and mailing addresses listed on your voter registration information are accurate. You can do that at hrc.org/Vote.
- If it is accurate, call your county election department to request a replacement physical ballot. You can find contact information for your county election department here.
- If you’re in Clark County you can also request an email ballot, but you’ll need to have access to email, printer and a scanner.
- Early vote: If you don’t receive a mail ballot in time, you can still vote in-person. Early voting in Nevada is from Oct. 17-Oct.30.
What if I’m not registered to vote?
You can still register to vote in two ways, either online or in person at your voting location.
- Online Voter Registration *by Oct. 29*
- You can check your voter registration status or register to vote online at hrc.org/Vote.
- You need a valid NV driver’s license or DMV identification card to register online.
- The deadline to register to vote online is Oct. 29. However, you should register before Oct. 15, which is the deadline to register online and still receive a ballot in the mail. If you register online after Oct. 15, then you will need to vote in-person and show identification.
- Same-Day Voter Registration (SDR)
- You may register to vote in-person on the same-day that you vote, as long as you have a valid NV driver’s license, NV DMV identification card or NV DMV temporary interim document.
- Make sure your addresses match. If the address on your NV DMV identification does not match that address that you’re registering to vote with/where you actually live, you will also need to provide proof of residence. Proof of residence is something that proves that you actually live at the address you’re registering, such as:
- A military identification card
- A bank or credit union statement
- A paycheck
- An income tax return
- A property tax statement
- A motor vehicle registration
- A utility bill (electric, gas, oil, water, sewer, septic, phone, cell phone, cable)
- A mortgage statement, or residential rental or lease agreement
- Any other document issued by a governmental agency
- Counting of SDR Ballot: A Same-Day Registration ballot will be considered a provisional ballot, which means it will only be counted only after verification that: (1) You were qualified to register to vote and cast a ballot in the current election; (2) You did not cast multiple ballots in the same election; and (3) IF applicable, confirmation you provided acceptable additional proof of residency.
