Welcome to the Elko Township Justice and City of Elko Municipal Courts


*NOTICE -- As a precaution related to COVID-19, the use of face coverings and hand sanitizer is required for all persons upon entering any office or court proceeding in the Elko Justice/Municipal Court.* 

The Elko Township Justice and City of Elko Municipal Courts are some of the busiest in Nevada.  

This website is designed to help court users learn about and best use court services. 

The Elko Justice/Municipal Court is located in the basement of the Elko County Courthouse in downtown Elko, Nevada.

*In response to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 and recommendations put forth by the governor and the Nevada Supreme Court, the Elko Justice Court requests that the public avoid coming into the office if at all possible. To obtain information, forms, or to make payments, you may contact the court by phone, email, or visiting the website.

*If you are scheduled for a court hearing, you are urged to contact your attorney or the court to request a hearing by video conference, (Zoom).


There are two main entrances into the Courthouse.  The first is off of Court Street and the second is a Handicapped accessible ramp located on George Re Boucher DR (6th ST).

Once through security, go downstairs and follow the blue footprints.

Weddings and anyone with a traffic citation must check in with the Justice Court Clerks first before going to a courtroom. 


If you have court and you are not sure where to go, check our digital docket display.  Just find your name and all of the information is listed next to it.  The displays near security show information for both courtrooms.  Displays near the individual courtrooms only show information for that specific courtroom.
