Voting is one of the foundations of a democracy. The Clark County Auditor supervises and administers federal, state and local elections conducted in the county. The Elections Office advises voters, candidates, political action committees, political parties, cities, special districts and others about administrative rules and election laws.
The department also maintains voter registration records, administers candidate filing, and produces the local voters’ pamphlet.
The “Life of a Ballot” video was prepared several years ago and contains information that has changed. These changes are:
- The deadline to register to vote through the mail or online is now eight days before Election Day.
- The deadline to register to vote in person at the Elections Office is now 8:00pm Election Day.
- There are now 22 ballot drop boxes in Clark County, as well as a ballot drop box inside the Elections Office building.
- Ballot packages now include a secrecy sleeve, instead of a secrecy envelope.
