Am I eligible to vote in Nevada?
To be eligible to vote in Nevada, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years of age on Election Day, have resided in Nevada for at least 30 days, be in the precinct where you will be voting at least 10 days before the election, and be registered to vote.
You CAN NOT register and vote if:
- You are currently in prison for a felony offense, or
- You have been judged mentally incompetent in court unless you have been restored to legal capacity.
Nevada voters should be aware that if you fail to vote in two consecutive federal elections, your local county clerk/Registrar of Voters is REQUIRED to cancel your voter registration and you must re-register if you want to vote.
To determine if you are registered to vote, visit RegisterToVoteNV.gov.
In 2017, Nevada law was changed to allow Indian tribes to request polling places within the boundaries of a reservation or colony. Learn more about how to submit a request. NOTE: Under the new law, if a polling place offers early voting, election officials are not required to also establish a polling place on Election Day.
