The 82nd (2023) Regular Session of the Nevada Legislature begins on Monday, February 6 and will end on June 5. 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 2022 election, both Senate and Assembly remained majority Democratic. The governor and lieutenant governor became Republicans, with most other state constitutional officers being Democrats. The exception is Republican State Controller Andy Matthews. Federal elected officials are all Democrats except for Republican Mark Amodei in Congressional District 2.

For the 2022 General Election, early voting begins on Saturday, October 22 and ends on Friday, November 4. The Washoe County Registrar of Voters provides a list of in person voting and ballot drop off locations.

All active voters in Washoe County will be sent a mail in ballot. You can complete the ballot and mail it in, take the completed ballot to one of the drop off locations, or not use the ballot and either vote early in person or on Election Day (Tuesday, November 8, 2022).

With both in person early voting and voting on Election Day, you can vote at any of the available locations, not just in your assigned precinct. Of course, you must be registered to vote to participate.

2022 Primary Election Day in Washoe County and Nevada is Tuesday, June 14. You can vote in person if you wish at any of several vote centers (same as polling places). You can vote at any vote center, not just one in your precinct. Otherwise, be sure to send your mail-in ballot so it is postmarked no later than Election Day or it won’t be counted.

Early voting will be available from May 28 through June 10, 2022. Early voting vote centers will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
