Any registered voter may request to vote by mail. A voter can request to receive an absentee ballot for certain elections or permanently, for all future elections. To request an absent ballot, you must complete and submit an absent ballot request form. Completed forms can be mailed, emailed or faxed to the Churchill County Clerk/Treasurer's Office.
The absent ballot request form must be received by the clerk by the appropriate deadline. Requests must be received by the Clerk no later than 5 p.m. on the 14th day preceding the election. Submit your request early to allow enough time to receive your ballot and mail your voted ballot back to the clerk's office.
