Who is eligible to vote in Nevada?

To be eligible to vote in Nevada, you must meet specific criteria.

These requirements include the following:

  • Must be a U.S. citizen
  • Must be at least 18 years old on Election Day
  • Must have lived in Nevada for at least 30 days
  • Must live in the precinct where you will be voting at least ten days before the election
  • Must be registered to vote in Nevada

You cannot register and vote if:

  • You are currently in prison for a felony offense

Nevada voters should be aware that if they fail to vote in two consecutive federal elections, the local county clerk/Registrar of Voters will cancel their voter registration. They must re-register if they want to vote.

To see if you're registered to vote, visit Nevada's Secretary of State voting site.


Where Do I Vote?

In Clark and Washoe County, voters can vote at any polling place. Voters in all other Nevada counties must vote at their assigned polling place. Polling places must be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
