Note:  For additional information on Elections, click on the tab "Links" to the left.


The League of Women Voters of Northern Nevada is not publishing a local voter guide but is instead taking part in US League's Vote411.org Voter Guide program. Both local and state candidates have been invited to go to the website and enter their responses to several questions, as well as their contact information.

You can enter your address to find your polling place, build your ballot by clicking on the following link: Vote 411.org and much more! With our voters' guide you can see the races on your ballot, compare candidates' positions side-by-side, and print out a "ballot" indicating your preferences as a reminder and take it with you to the polls on Election Day.

WHERE TO VOTE

Sample ballots are mailed to all registered voters. The sample ballot includes sites where early voting will be held and where one’s polling place is on election day. County Clerks/Registrars of Voters also have this information and can verify voter registration if the voter does not receive a sample ballot.

ABSENTEE VOTING

An absentee ballot may be obtained from the County Clerk/Registrar of Voters in the county in which the voter resides. Please contact their office for details. Uniformed service members or US citizens outside the country should download, fill out and submit the Federal Post Card Application.

EARLY VOTING

Early voting is easy in Nevada, and is available to every voter. Voters can vote at any location in their respective county where early voting is offered. Early voting offers the following benefits:

  • Makes voting more accessible to more citizens;
  • Increases voter participation rates;
  • Allows more accurate and efficient ballot counts;
  • Reduces administrative costs to the taxpayer; and
  • Creates a more informed and thoughtful electorate.
