Voting for this November’s general election will be slightly different around Clark County, and excused absentee ballots may be requested starting Saturday, Sept. 24th.

Since the time of the May elections, additional voting machines have been purchased by the Clark County Fiscal Court. 

As a result, all precincts will be open for voting on Election Day, Nov. 8. The Clark County Courthouse’s main floor will also be a place where anyone can vote.
