Municipal Elections

Henderson Municipal Elections are governed by Nevada Revised Statues (NRS). Municipal elections are held in conjunction with the statewide election calendar in even-numbered years. The next City of Henderson Municipal Election will be held in 2022.

Initiatives & Referenda

Initiatives and referenda are processes that allow Nevada citizens to utilize a petition circulation process to propose new legislation, amend the Nevada Constitution or existing state statutes or approve or disapprove of existing laws. They are both methods of involving voters directly in the legislative process of government.

For additional information, visit the Nevada Secretary of State's website. The site contains important deadlines, guides, forms and maps.
