This week’s update is a mid-week, but it is just as important! First, the date mail-in ballots will go out to Clark County voters is now October 10th.
If you plan to vote with your mail-in ballot, I recommend signing up for the free ballot track program offered through the Secretary of State’s Office. Sign up to either receive an email or text message when your ballot is mailed to you, when it arrives back in the election department, and when your ballot is counted. You can sign up here: https://nevada.ballottrax.net/voter/
If you have not received your Sample Ballot yet, please log into this webpage and then click on the Sample Ballot tab. You can download your PDF Sample Ballot and start researching your candidates today. https://www.nvsos.gov/votersearch/
The League of Women Voters of Nevada has all the information you need to research the candidates compiled on our blog: https://lwvnvblog.org/
We have a video voter guide, recordings of conversations with the education candidates, recordings of open houses with the judicial and education candidates, and a guide to voter guides and organization endorsements.
This Friday, via Zoom, 6-7:30 pm, join us for our weekly Judicial Candidates Open House to meet the candidates and engage in a discussion about how we fund our courts and support our judges. RSVP here: https://actionnetwork.org/events/judicial-candidates-the-courts-open-house/
On Saturday we will meet with the education candidates, via Zoom, 6-7:30 pm, to wrap-up our three-session Open House series. We are covering a wide range of topics, from education equity to assessment and accountability. RSVP here: https://actionnetwork.org/events/education-candidates-open-house/
Lastly, this election we need every voter to reach out to family and friends to help them make a plan to vote early and safely. Each one of us can be a change-maker by ensuring every eligible voter can cast a ballot and have that ballot count.
