Nevada offers “No Excuse” mail ballot voting which means anyone can request a mail ballot for any reason. Current law requires that most voters request mail ballots each election cycle but, beginning in 2018, voters that are at least 65 years of age or self-identify as having a physical disability may request permanent mail ballots. Once a permanent mail ballot request is made voters will receive mail ballots for all elections in which they are eligible to vote in. Voters with a permanent request will continue to receive mail ballots until they cancel their registration, withdraw their request to receive permanent mail ballots or no longer have a valid address. Both annual and permanent requests are made using the 2018 Mail Ballot Request form below.
Covered Military and Overseas voters are entitled to receive ballots via electronic transmission if they so choose. Electronic (email or fax) ballots must be requested using one of the following options
1. Complete the Federal Postcard Application (FPCA) and return it to the Clerk’s office. FPCA
2. Visit the Nevada Secretary of State’s EASE website to simultaneously request and vote a mail ballot. (this option is only available during an election cycle) Nevada EASE Website
3. Complete the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB) Application and return it to the Clerk’s office. (this option allows you to simultaneously request and vote a mail ballot but it will not include any candidate names, races or ballot measures.
