Mail Ballot and In-Person Voting (AB321)
Starting in 2022, Nevada will have all-mail ballot elections. All voters who are registered to vote no later than 14 days before Election Day will receive a mail ballot, unless they opt out. To opt out, you must submit a “Mail Ballot written or online Preference Form” to request that you not receive a mail ballot. The Nevada Secretary of State will provide the online option and the Election Department will immediately receive the request.
Use the Mail Ballot Preference Form (to print, complete, and mail) to opt out of automatically receiving the mail ballot. The Election Department must receive all requests no later than 60 days before Election Day. The deadline to opt out for the November 8, 2022, Primary Election is September 9, 2022.
If you prefer, you may still vote in person on a voting machine at any one of the many convenient early voting sites or Election Day vote centers, even if you receive a mail ballot. No matter where you live or what your precinct is, you may vote at any Clark County voting site you choose.

The United States is a diverse land with a government selected by the votes of its citizens. Federal law recognizes that many Americans rely heavily on languages other than English, and that they require information in minority languages in order to be informed voters and participate effectively in our representative democracy. Many provisions of federal law protect the voting rights of language minority Americans. Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act is the keystone. Congress has mandated language minority ballots in some jurisdictions since 1975, with the most recent changes in the method of determining which jurisdictions must provide language minority materials and information becoming law in 1992.
