A primary election must be held on the Tuesday following the first Monday in April preceding the general election, at which time there must be nominated candidates for offices to be voted for at the general election. In the primary election the names of the two candidates who receive the highest number of votes must be placed on the ballot for the general election. If, regardless of the number of candidates for an office, one candidate receives a majority of the total votes cast for that office in the primary election, he/she must be declared elected to that office and no general election need be held for that office. Seats are non-partisan: Council seat shall be elected for a term of four (4) years; Municipal Court Judge shall be elected for a term of six (6) years. Each Council Member shall be voted for and elected only by the registered voters of the ward that the Council Member will represent (Article II, Section 2.010, Subsection 5 of the Charter of the City of North Las Vegas). Candidates for all other elective offices must be voted upon by the registered voters of the City at large. (NLVMC 2.08.030, 2.08.060, NLVCC 2.010, 4.020)

Each candidate for Council Member Wards 2 and 4, must meet the following qualifications:

(A) Be a qualified elector who has resided in the ward which he/she represents for at least thirty (30) days immediately preceding the last day for filing a declaration of candidacy and must continue to live in the ward.

Each candidate for Municipal Court Judge must meet the following qualifications:

(A) Be a bona fide resident of the City for at least a continuous six (6) month period immediately preceding the election;

(B) Be a qualified elector within the City of North Las Vegas.

(C) Be a duly licensed member, in good standing, of the State Bar of Nevada and devote full time to the duties of the office.

All candidates for elective office shall, at the time of filing, produce evidence in satisfaction of their qualifications for said elective office. Said qualifications are set out in the Charter of the City of North Las Vegas as amended, and Section 2.08.060 of the Municipal Code. The City Clerk’s Office may access water billing history to determine residency unless other proof is provided by the candidate. Candidates running for Municipal Court Judge must provide a copy of their State Bar License.

Each candidate shall be charged, and the City Clerk shall collect from each candidate at the time of filing a filing fee in the sum of one hundred dollars ($100.00) (Ord. 1472 § 3, 2000) and twenty-five dollars ($25.00) for the placement of political signs in North Las Vegas (NLVMC 17.24.115), which shall be deposited to the credit of the general fund of the City.

Military/Overseas Voters

Military personnel and their dependents temporarily living outside of Clark County, and Clark County residents temporarily living overseas should submit a "Registration and Absentee Ballot Request - Federal Post Card Application" (FPCA) instead of the standard Voter Registration Application. It is a combined Voter Registration Application and mail ballot request that eliminates the need to submit these items separately. The registration/mail ballot request is valid through the next two regularly scheduled general election for federal offices (e.g., 2010 and 2012). The FPCA is available from Voting Officers at military bases, U.S. embassies or consulates and the Election Department.

Absentee Voters

Any registered voter, for any reason, may request a mail ballot. The request must be IN WRITING. You may fax your request to the Election Department at (702) 455-2831. The request must be received on or before 5:00 p.m. on the Tuesday before election day.

First-time voters who did not provide I.D. when they registered must provide I.D. when they vote. If you did not provide identification when you registered and have not yet voted in a Clark County election:

  • You must provide a copy of your I.D. when you request a mail ballot for the first time.
  • If you do not include a copy of your I.D. with your mail ballot request, you may still submit it along with your voted mail ballot, inside the official return envelope.
  • If you still do not provide a copy of your I.D. along with your voted mail ballot in State and Federal elections, your ballot will become a provisional ballot. Only your choices for federal offices, e.g. President, U.S. Senate and Congress, will be counted AND only if you submit a copy of your I.D. to the Election Department by 5:00 p.m. on the Friday after election day.
  • If you never provide I.D., your ballot will not be counted.
