You can’t vote if you aren’t registered.
Tuesday is the last chance to register to vote for Clark County residents who want to cast ballots in the Nov. 4 general election.
Eligible voters — U.S. citizens who will be at least 18 on Election Day and are not barred from voting because of a felony conviction — must go in person to one of two government offices if they hope to register Tuesday:
—The Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas, downtown near the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Interstate 15.
—The Clark County Election Center, 965 Trade Drive, North Las Vegas, near the intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard.
Both offices will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday. The Clark County Election Department can be reached at 455-VOTE (8683).
To find out whether you are already registered, call the Election Department or go online. At the department’s Web site, www.accessclarkcounty.com/depts/election, you can enter your name and birth date to check your registration.
At the Nevada secretary of state’s election Web site,www.silverstate08.com, you can also check your registration status by entering your personal information.
In addition to the hotly contested presidential race, the November ballot features races for the U.S. House of Representatives, Nevada Supreme Court, state Assembly and Senate, Clark County Commission, Clark County School Board, Nevada State Board of Education, university system regents, numerous local judgeships and a handful of ballot questions.
The Review-Journal will publish a guide to the candidates and questions on the ballot as a special section of the newspaper this Sunday. All registered voters receive a sample ballot from the Election Department in the mail that lists the races in which they are eligible to vote and details polling locations.
Early voting will begin Saturday and last two weeks at malls, stores and government buildings around the Las Vegas Valley. Hours and locations vary from day to day. Check your sample ballot, call the Election Department or go to its Web site for that information.
If you wish to vote by mail, the Election Department must receive your request for a mail ballot by Oct. 28; the completed mail ballot must be received by Election Day.
On Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4, you must vote at your designated precinct polling location.
