With the general election getting closer each day, there are now three days left to register to vote (four counting the rest of today).
The last day to register to vote without having to appear in person at the Election Department Office is Saturday, Oct. 4. On that day, field registrars will be at all Las Vegas area shopping malls during regular mall hours to make registration easy.
In addition to the Election Department Office, located at 965 Trade Drive, Suite A, people can register by filling out mail-in forms at any city clerk’s office, all Department of Motor Vehicles locations and any state welfare or WIC office.
Mail-in registration forms can be found at all U.S. Postal Service locations and libraries. Postage is pre-paid but all forms must be postmarked no later than the deadline.
After the Oct. 4 deadline, people can still register to vote by going to the Election Department Office or the first floor of the Clark County Government Center, located at 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, until Tuesday, Oct. 14. These locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 5; 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct.6 through Oct. 9; and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 10 through Oct. 14.
If you have already registered, go to the county’s Election Department Web site to make sure your registration was processed correctly.
“One of the biggest problems on election day is people aren’t actually registered,” said Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax.
