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.

If you are new to Reno, you may have yet to experience the full range of weather conditions we can get in the Truckee Meadows and nearby areas. It can literally go from mild to wild in a short period of time, and it varies quite a bit from year to year.

The City of Reno has plans in place to deal with rainy and snowy weather, as does Washoe County and the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT). While these precautions aren’t always needed, it is important for residents to know what to expect when the snow flies and roads get wet and slick from stormy weather.

It is worth noting that the City of Reno, City of Sparks, and Washoe County have in place an interlocal agreement to assist each other as needed when there is a declared snow emergency. When it really gets bad, everyone will work together in the interest of public safety throughout the Truckee Meadows.

If you don’t take advantage of early voting or absent voting, you’ll have to cast your ballot on Election Day, which is Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Get out and have your say by voting.

Unlike during the early voting period, on Election Day you must vote in the precinct in which you are registered and at the designated polling location. If you aren’t sure, you can check your voter registration status through either the Washoe County Registrar of Voters or the Nevada Secretary of State.
