(Carson City, NV; September 1, 2021) – Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske joins fellow members of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) in encouraging citizens to celebrate National Voter Registration Month by registering to vote.
“National Voter Registration Month is a time to promote the various means available for eligible Nevadans to register to vote,” said Secretary Cegavske. “Voting is a right and privilege given to United States citizens that should not be taken for granted. Nevadans need to take the opportunity to make their voices heard by electing local, state, and federal officials through the process of voting.”
The nation's Secretaries of State established September as National Voter Registration Month in 2002 as a non-partisan means of encouraging voter participation and increasing awareness about state requirements and deadlines for voting. Nevada has joined the effort by proclaiming the month of September as Voter Registration Month.
To register to vote in Nevada, a person must be a United States citizen, be at least 18 years of age on or before Election Day and have resided in their Nevada county for at least 30 days. Individuals may register to vote online at RegisterToVote.NV.gov, at their county clerk or registrar of voters' office and at various social service agencies. Community organizations who are willing to conduct voter registration drives are asked to follow the guidelines outlined on the Secretary of State website here.
The Secretary of State’s office has valuable information, resources, and accessible tools available on our website at NVSOS.GOV.
