VOTE FOR EQUALITY: RETURN YOUR PRIMARY BALLOT BY TUESDAY, JUNE 9
Nevada’s Primary Election on Tuesday, June 9, is a mail-in ballot election! That means all registered voters in the state of Nevada should have received a ballot in the mail. If you have not received your ballot: Clark County voters call (702) 455-VOTE (8683) and Washoe County voters call (775) 328-3670 right away. (If you live in another county, click here for your county’s phone number.)
Follow the instructions below and make sure to sign your envelope before mailing it in or dropping it off!
Step 1: Receive your ballot in the mail and open it up.
Inside, you should have:
- A Ballot
- Set of Instructions
- Privacy Sleeve (which sometimes doubles as your instruction sheet)
- Return Envelope
Step 2: Refer to your instruction sheet for important information.
Some guidelines include:
- Use a black or blue ink pen (not felt/marker) to complete your ballot.
- Fill the oval of your choices completely.
- If you make a mistake, do not use correction fluid or tape. Cross out the name of the candidate or question you didn’t want to vote for. Make sure the bubble of the candidate or question you did want to vote for is fully filled in.
Step 3: Fill out your ballot.
- You don’t have to vote in every category.
- If you vote multiple times in one category, no vote will be counted.
Step 4: Detach the ballot stub.
- This is yours to keep for your records.
- Be careful when you detach it so you don’t damage your ballot.
Step 5: Insert your ballot into the privacy sleeve.
- This may be a separate sleeve or your instruction sheet may double as a privacy sleeve.
- Part of your ballot may stick out, that’s okay; your vote is safe and private.
Step 6: Slide the privacy sleeve (with ballot inside) into the return envelope.
- Please only include one ballot per envelope.
- If you include multiple ballots in one envelope, none of them will be counted.
Step 7: Sign and seal your return envelope.
- Depending on your return envelope, you may need to sign it before you seal it.
- The signature location varies by county, but each return envelope should be clearly marked with a “Sign Here” line.
- Your signature will be compared with the signature on your voter registration.
- If your ballot is not signed, this security check cannot be completed and your vote can not be counted.
Step 8: Mail it in!
- In order to be counted, your ballot must be postmarked by Election day, June 9.
- If you accidentally damage your ballot and you need a new one prior to June 2, please contact your county registrar’s office.
