Voter registration deadline in Nevada is Tuesday

If you want to vote in this year’s elections, you must register by Tuesday.

If you are not yet registered, now is the time to do so. And with dozens of new technological efforts geared at getting every American registered, it’s easier than ever.

If you have a few minutes to spare, here are the requirements:

  • U.S. citizenship
  • Must be at least 18 by Nov. 8, 2016
  • Live at a Nevada address by Oct. 9, 2016
  • Not be convicted of a felony
  • Not currently judged incompetent by a court

You’ll also need a Nevada driver’s license or ID card.

In Clark County you can register online or in person; the mail-in deadline has passed.

The Clark County Election Department at the Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, first floor, will be open until 5 p.m. today; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday; and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
