N.R.S. 293D.220 - Covered voter’s registration address; assignment of precinct

Overview of Statute

This section provides for a convered voter’s registration address.


In registering to vote, a covered voter shall use and must be assigned to the precinct of the address of the last place of residence of the covered voter in this State or, in the case of a dependent, the address of the last place of residence in this State of the parent or legal guardian of the covered voter. If the last place of residence in this State has not been assigned a street address, the address at which the covered voter resides for purposes of this section is a description of the location at which the voter actually resides. The description must identify the location with sufficient specificity to allow the county clerk to assign the location to a precinct.
