Aug. 23 last day to register to vote for the special election



The last day to register to vote is Aug. 23 for the Sept. 13 special election, and all registered voters in Washoe County are eligible to vote. Checking voting status, party affiliation and polling locations is simple to do online; however, new registrations and changes to current registration must be completed in person at the Registrar of Voters Office by 7 p.m. on Aug. 23.

How do I know if I’m registered?
Ensure that you are indeed registered to vote and your voter registration record has your correct address by simply logging onto www.washoecounty.us/voters and clicking on the large yellow box on the bottom of the webpage that says, “Am I A Registered Voter?” Enter your name and birth date to locate your voter registration information in our database including your party affiliation, where you vote (with directions) and the address your sample ballot was mailed to.

What if the address on my voter registration information is incorrect or I’m not registered?

If you are in our voter registration database but your address is incorrect, please contact our Registrar of Voters office immediately at 328-3670. If you are not in the online database, that means you are not registered to vote. The last day to register to vote for the Sept. 13 special election is Aug. 23 (by 7 p.m.).

For new registrations and to make changes you must register in person at the Registrar’s Office at 1101 E. Ninth Street (the Washoe County Administrative Complex), Bldg. A, first floor. Extended office hours on August 22 and 23 are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, please call (775) 328-3670.

Please note that although a Truckee Meadows Water bill insert has been produced and distributed to all TMWA customers with a final day to register as August 27, this date was changed by the Secretary of the State after distribution of the bill insert. The final day to register is August 23.

The VoteRef initiative is an important indication of how some influential and well-funded Republicans across the country plan to encourage crowdsourcing of voter rolls to find what they consider errors and anomalies, then dispute voter registrations of specific individuals.
