Nevada uses a closed primary system, meaning voters must register with a party to be able to vote in their primary election.

When and where

The deadline for registration is 21 days prior to the election. Registration is available in the form of a printed document to be returned by mail or in person. You can also register to vote at any Department of Motor Vehicles office, at your county clerk or registrar's office, at various social service agencies, and on college campuses. Additionally, voters may register online.[1]
