Attention eligible voters: Saturday is the last day to register to vote in this year’s general election without having to go to the Election Department’s offices.
Voter registration drives will take place at the Boulevard Mall, Galleria at Sunset, Las Vegas Outlet Center and the Meadows Mall from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday to make registering easy. People can also pick up voter registration forms with pre-paid postage at all U.S. Postal Service locations and libraries. The forms must be postmarked no later than Saturday.
After Saturday, people can still register at the Election Department’s offices at the Clark County Government Center, 500 S.
