You know Nevada, it'd be easy for us to throw out some puns like, "Don't GAMBLE with America's future” (not cool), or “What happens at the polls, stays at the polls" (doesn’t make sense), or even "Hoover Dam it feels good to vote" (sorry). But we would never do that, this election is too important! Nevada will have two main elections in 2022: Its primary election will take place on June 14, and the general will be held on November 8. Here's everything you need to know about Election Day in the Silver State. (Source: Ballot Ready)

what's new in nevada voting since 2020

Great news Nevada! Your election system is going 21st Century. After trying out an all-mail election in 2020, Nevada will now permanently have primarily vote by mail elections, so every eligible voter will receive a ballot in the mail for every election. What's more, Nevada enhanced its automatic voter registration system, which means that interactions with any government service where you provide certain documents or notice of address change (DMV, Medicaid administration, etc) will automatically transmit that information to the election authorities to register new voters or update registrations. But wait, there's even more good news! Nevada now requires a dropbox at every polling location, and many localities will have additional drop boxes as well. The state also established a minimum number of polling places during early voting and on election day AND expanded online voter registration up through the day of the election. There's no excuses now, Nevada! Go vote!
