      1.  The local elections official shall request an electronic-mail address from each covered voter who registers to vote. An electronic-mail address provided by a covered voter is confidential and is not a public book or record within the meaning of NRS 239.010. A local elections official may not release a covered voter’s electronic-mail address to a third party. A local elections official may use the address only to communicate with the covered voter about the voting process, including transmitting military-overseas ballots and election materials if the covered voter has requested electronic transmission, and verifying the covered voter’s mailing address and physical location, as needed. A request for an electronic-mail address under this subsection must describe the purpose for which the electronic-mail address will be used and state that any other use or disclosure is prohibited.

      2.  A covered voter who provides an electronic-mail address may request that his or her application for a military-overseas ballot be considered a standing request for electronic delivery of a ballot for all elections held through December 31 of the year following the calendar year of the date of the application or another shorter period the covered voter specifies. The local elections official shall provide a military-overseas ballot to a covered voter who makes a request for each election to which the request is applicable. A covered voter who is entitled to receive a military-overseas ballot for a primary election under this subsection is also entitled to receive a military-overseas ballot for the general election.

      NRS 293D.530  Mistake, omission or noncompliance with nonessential requirement by covered voter in completion of document does not invalidate document in certain circumstances.  If a covered voter’s mistake or omission in the completion of a document under this chapter does not prevent determining whether a covered voter is eligible to vote, the mistake or omission does not invalidate the document. Failure to satisfy a nonessential requirement, including, without limitation, using paper or envelopes of a specified size or weight, does not invalidate any document submitted under this chapter. In any write-in ballot authorized by this chapter, if the intention of the covered voter is discernable under this State’s uniform definition of what constitutes a vote, as required by the Help America Vote Act of 2002, 42 U.S.C. § 15481(a)(6), an abbreviation, misspelling or other minor variation in the form of the name of a candidate or a political party must be accepted as a valid vote.
