More Information

On your voter registration application, you will be asked to indicate your party affiliation. You also have the option to be registered as a Nonpartisan voter, meaning you have no political party affiliation. However, Nevada voters must be registered with a party to participate in its primary elections for state and federal office. Nevada holds caucuses every four years as part of the primary election process, in which voters report to the precincts of their registered party to elect the presidential candidate. Each caucus is subject to its own rules, which are set by the corresponding state party officials, rather than state government.

Any registered voter in Nevada can request an absentee ballot and vote by mail.

If you are not voting for the first time in Nevada, you do not need to bring ID with you to vote in person.

If you’re a first-time voter, registered by mail or online, didn’t include a copy of ID when you registered, and didn’t provide a valid driver’s license number or social security number on your application, be sure to bring one of the following:

  • A current photo ID that shows your address
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address (however, a voter registration ID is not accepted)
