TONOPAH - NOTICE: Not too late to drop your ballot for June 9, 2020, PRIMARY in the mail. Must be postmarked by Tuesday.

ON PRIMARY DAY: Ballots may also be dropped off on Tuesday at the County Clerk’s Office in Tonopah, 1010 Radar Road; or Pahrump at the Government Complex, 1520 East Basin Ave.

County voters who need a new ballot because the one mailed to them was lost or destroyed, and County residents who still need to register to vote can also do so at the locations above from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday

RETURNING YOUR VOTED MAIL BALLOT The Nye County Election Department will process and count voted mail ballots that are returned in the envelope provided, but only if the outside of the envelope is signed by the voter. This is required for verification purposes. The ballots must be submitted and received in one of the following ways: • Mailed Through the U.S. Post Office: We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE VOTERS TO RETURN THEIR VOTED MAIL BALLOT THROUGH THE U.S. POST OFFICE rather than drop it off in-person. To send it by postal mail, voters must:

o Seal their voted mail ballot in the pre-addressed, postage-paid, return envelope included in the packet they will receive.

o Sign the outside of the envelope in the space provided for their signature.

o Make sure their signed envelope is postmarked by June 9, 2020. Note that we must receive properly postmarked ballots by 5:00 pm on June 16, 2020, (7 days after the Election Day) for them to be counted.

• Dropped-Off In-Person: Voters may also drop off their own voted mail ballot, but only at the Nye County’s Clerk’s Office in Tonopah and Pahrump, as described above.

To do this, voters must:

o Seal their voted mail ballot in the return envelope included in the packet they will receive.

o Sign the outside of the envelope in the space provided for their signature.

o Drop off their voted mail ballot no later than 7:00 pm on Election Day.
