In case you haven’t voted yet, don’t worry: You still have time! Just remember that voting is different this year, so consider this a friendly reminder of how to participate in today’s primary election.
Here’s how to vote today.
If you still have your ballot, you can fill it in and turn it in today! But really, you must turn it in today, as election authorities will only count ballots that are postmarked no later than today (June 9) and received no later than June 16.
If you can not and/or will not drop your ballot in the mail, the Clark County Election Department has several safe ballot drop-off sites open in Southern Nevada today, but keep in mind that only some of them are open until the traditional 7:00 PM poll closing time. If you’re in the Reno-Sparks region, the Washoe County Registrar of Voters is only accepting ballots through the mail (see above) or in-person at the Washoe County administrative complex in Reno (until 7:00 PM tonight).
If you’re in Rural Nevada, check with your local election office on where to drop off your ballot or vote in-person. And speaking of voting in-person, please remember that due to COVID-19, you’ll probably have a different experience. If you’re in the Truckee Meadows, only the Washoe County Registrar of Voters office is open and available until 7:00 PM tonight. If you’re in the Las Vegas Valley, three in-person voting sites are open until 7:00 PM: the Clark County Election Department office in North Las Vegas, Desert Breeze Community Center near Summerlin, and the Paradise Recreation Center (a few blocks east of UNLV).
I know this year’s primary is very different from the “typical Nevada election experience”. You can’t really phone it in, but you can mail it in! However you decide to vote today, please stay safe while exercising your constitutional rights.
