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.

Nevada is one of the states allowing early voting. For the 2020 General Election, early voting begins on Saturday, October 17 and ends on Friday, October 30. 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 beginning October 5, 2020. 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 3, 2020).

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.

2020 Primary Election Day in Washoe County and Nevada is Tuesday, June 9. You can vote in person if you wish, but the only polling place will be the Washoe County Registrar of Voters office, 1001 E. 9th Street, Building A, Reno. Polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Otherwise, be sure to send your mail-in ballot so it is postmarked no later than Election Day.
