This is available at both early voting and election day polling locations.

You can check on your voter registration status by inquiring through the Nevada Secretary of State “Registered Voter Services.” If you have any questions about your voter registration, contact the Washoe County Registrar at (775) 328-3670.

The 81st (2021) Regular Session of the Nevada Legislature begins on Monday, February 1 and will end on May 31. The Nevada Legislature meets every other year in the state capital of Carson City for 120 consecutive days. This time frame is set by the Nevada constitution. Otherwise, special sessions can be called by the governor or by two-thirds of the legislature.

In the 2020 election, both Senate and Assembly remained majority Democratic. The governor and most other state constitutional officers are also Democrats. The exception is Republican Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, who did an outstanding job of ensuring a fair and accurate 2020 General Election in Nevada.
