Storey County Ballots Mailed Sept. 30

Storey County 2020 General Election ballots will be in the mail Wednesday, Sept. 30. Schedules are also available for early in-person and day of voting. 

Clerk-Treasurer, Vanessa Stephens, reminds registered voters that a new service announced by the Nevada Secretary of State Elections Division to track the status of voter ballots including when it is mailed, when it is received by the county and when it’s been counted is available. This free service is provided through a partnership between the Elections Division and BallotTrax. BallotTax, a leader in mail ballot locator and notification systems, provides ballot tracking services to voters in many other states.  

To sign up for ballot tracking for the Nov. 3 General Election ballots, visit and register. Voters are able to select how they want to receive tracking alerts including text message, email or voice call, as well as the hours to receive notifications. Preferences can be modified and updated at any time.

The only information required to sign up for ballot tracking is the voter’s first and last name, date of birth and zip code. All information remains private. Voters are not required to provide their Social Security number or driver’s license number. In addition to signing up for ballot tracking, Nevada voters can always verify the status of their ballot by visiting the Secretary of State’s registered voter services website

Pursuant to Assembly Bill 4 from the 32nd Special Session of the Nevada Legislature, all active registered voters in Nevada will receive a ballot in the mail for the 2020 General Election.
