It’s easy to get a marriage license in Reno and up around Lake Tahoe. There are, however, a few rules to follow and the inevitable fees to pay. Marriage licenses issued by any county in Nevada are valid in every county.

The Washoe County Marriage License Bureau has two offices – one in Reno and another in Incline Village on Lake Tahoe’s north shore. The Reno office is open 8 a.m. to 12 midnight, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Incline Village is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, closed on all holidays. Licenses can be obtained up to a year prior to the wedding.

Rules and fees for marriage licenses from nearby areas like Carson City and Douglas County (Carson Valley, Stateline/South Lake Tahoe) are a bit different. Get more information from “Marriage Licenses in Reno and at Lake Tahoe.”

In Nevada, same-sex couples can obtain marriage licenses through the same procedure as heterosexual couples, no hassle involved.

The 80th (2019) Regular Session of the Nevada Legislature is now in session. It began on Monday, February 4 and will end on June 3. 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 2018 election, both Senate and Assembly remained majority Democratic. Voters sent even more Democrats to both houses than in the previous election. The governor and most other state constitutional officers are also Democrats, elected for four years in the 2018 election. Nevada has elected a female majority legislature for the first time in U.S. history.
