The form can be printed out off the Internet or picked up at one of the many agencies that keep the forms on hand, including postal offices and libraries. After the form has been filled out, it can be hand delivered to the county clerk or mailed in.
All Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles offices also have these forms and allow for residents to register to vote.
