Easy voter registration ends Saturday

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

All those months of walking past voter registration tables and door-to-door canvassing is coming to an end. As of Saturday night, if you haven't registered to vote you'll have to go to one of two locations to sign up.

This year voters had the option to register online, which was hugely successful, according to Larry Lomax, registrar of voters for Clark County.

"In the last couple of weeks we've had about 20,000 people use online registration," he said.

After Saturday night, if you are not on the list you will need to go to either the Clark County Government Center or to the Voter Registrar office on Trade Street near Cheyenne Avenue. 

Based on past experience, Lomax expects both those centers to be busy.

"In 2008, we got 37,000 forms that week alone, and we're going to do more than that this time," he said.

It's not just procrastinators who end up having to go stand in line to get on the voter list.

"The biggest complaint we have every election comes from people who thought they registered and left a form with some stranger and some location, trusting the person to turn that form in and we didn't get it," said Lomax. His advice, go online and make sure you are registered properly.

Early voting begins in southern Nevada Oct. 20 and will last until Nov. 2. The general election is on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
