Hello Nevada. I've heard you maybe wanna vote. If you do want to vote, first you will need to register to vote. If you're not sure whether you're registered, there's a link in the description where you can check right now. If you're not registered, or you need to update your name or address, there are a couple of ways to do it. If you have a Nevada driver's license or state ID, you can register online using the link below. If you don't have an ID, maybe you're a student from another state or you don't drive, there's another link to a form that you'll have to print and mail in. I get that that it's an extra step, and kind of annoying, but it is important, so register anyway. You can also register in person at your county elections office. A link to all of their addresses is below. If you register by mail, your registration form needs to be postmarked by October 8th, but you have until October 18th if you want register in person or online.

Once you're registered, you get to do the fun part: the voting. Anyone in Nevada can vote absentee by mail. All you need to do is fill out the absentee ballot form in the description and send it to your county clerk's office by November 1st. If this is your first time voting in Nevada and you want to vote by mail, you will also need to send in a proof of identity like a photocopy of your driver's license, state ID, student ID, passport, tribal ID, or even an insurance card. And a proof of residency like a bank statement, utility bill, paycheck, lease or mortgage, or vehicle registration with your name and address on it. If the address on your photo ID is current, that counts as both forms of ID. Then, you will get your ballot in the mail, you can fill it out your own pace, and mail it back before November 8th. Easy.

Another option if you want to skip the election day lines, or vote on your own schedule is to vote early in person. In Nevada you can vote early between October 22nd and November 4th, but hours and locations vary by county so check the link in the description to find out where and when you can go vote early.

If you really want that excitement of voting in person on November 8th, you can look up where you need to go to vote using the link below. Polls are open from 7 am to 7 pm and you shouldn't need to show an ID unless you didn't provide one when you registered. If that sounds like you, or this is your first time voting, bring proof of identity - those were the photo IDs - and the proof of residency - something official with your name and address on it - that I mentioned before. Just in case.

If you want to see everything that's going to be on the ballot ahead of time, you can go to the link in the description and look at a sample ballot. This gives you a chance to research the candidates and issues in your local elections ahead of time. Now you don't have to vote for every single thing on the ballot. You can leave things blank if you want to, but your local elections can be very important, so it's worth checking out what's on there ahead of time. You can even print out, and fill out that sample ballot, and bring it with you to the polls, so you don't forget who you wanted to vote for. All the links you need to check your registration, vote early, get your absentee ballot, find your polling location, and get a sample ballot are in the description below. Thank you for voting.
