How Vote By Mail Works in Nevada

Due to COVID-19, Nevada is mailing all registered voters ballots to the address on their registration. After you complete your ballot, be sure to return ASAP!

  • Return in person by Nov. 3rd at 7 p.m. You can return your ballot to your county designated dropbox or local elections office.
  • Or mail your ballot - it must be postmarked by Nov. 3rd and received by seven days after Election Day to be counted. To make your postmark date, put the ballot into your home mailbox for collection at least one day prior to ensure it is picked up and processed. You can also drop the ballot off at the post office before the last posted collection time on Nov. 3rd. We recommend returning ASAP as the post office may not be able to deliver within five days, even with the postmark.
Did you register later in October, or need your ballot sent to a different address? Apply here ASAP (deadline Oct. 14th at 5 p.m.) and follow the steps listed above. If it is your first time voting in Nevada, you need to submit a copy of your photo ID with your application.

Your state has a cure period, which means you can “cure” a challenge to the signature on your ballot if it was done incorrectly. Your local elections office is required to contact you and give you options to remedy your ballot. You have until seven days after Election Day to cure. You may get a call from a number you do not recognize with a notification that you need to cure your ballot. Be sure to pick up so you don't miss your chance to make sure your vote is counted.

Haven't used your ballot?

If you would like to vote in person, return your unused absentee ballot to your polling site and request an in-person ballot on Election Day.
