> Request Registration/Absentee Ballot > Nevada
The Federal Post Card Application registers you to vote and
requests absentee ballots for the Federal primary and
general elections immediately following the date which the
County Clerk received the request.
You may be already registered to vote. To check, go to Nevada's voter registration verification website. Even if you are registered to vote, you still need to complete the form to receive an absentee ballot. You may not need to fill out this entire form. Check out the instructions below to see what information your State requires.
Open Voter Registration/Absentee Ballot Request
(Opens in a new window and requires Adobe Reader 7)
Only the following blocks are required:
Block 1: Select the category that describes you.
Block 2: To vote in primary elections, you must enter your
political party affiliation. If you leave this block blank, you
will be registered as nonpartisan and will receive a
nonpartisan ballot for each nonpartisan primary election. If
you want to change your political party affiliation, submit a
completed FPCA indicating your new party preference to
the local election official no later than 31 days before the
election. Political party affiliation is not required if only
requesting absentee ballots for general elections.
Block 3: Name (Last, First, Middle)
Block 4: Date of Birth
Your valid Nevada Driver's License OR Nevada
identification card number is required for voter registration.
If you do not have either, provide the last four digits of your
Social Security number. If you do not possess any of these
identification numbers, contact your local election official
to be assigned a unique identification number.
Block 5: Recommended but not required. Provide your
contact information to allow the local election official to
follow up if more information is required.
Block 6: Nevada allows you to receive your blank ballot by
mail, email, or fax. Please rank your preference of how you
would like to receive your absentee ballot. Provide your
email address or fax number in Block 5. If you do not make
a selection, then your local election official will mail your
ballot to you.
Block 7: Complete street address of your Nevada voting
residence. A post office box is not sufficient. If your
address includes a rural route, describe its location in Block
9. This address must be within the county where you claim
legal voting residence.
Block 8: Complete address where you want your ballot
sent, usually where you live now.
Block 9: To receive a sample ballot in large print, specify
this request here. Provide any information that may assist
your election official in accepting this application.
Affirmation: Sign and date. No witness or notary required.
