Vote Nevada Supporters,
Thank you to all who attended one or more of our CCSD Trustee Candidate Showcase events, each was very successful. The open house format worked well, so we are considering hosting at least one more showcase before early voting starts on May 28th. More to come as we nail down the details.
Here is the Nevada Independent’s article on the showcases: https://thenevadaindependent.com/article/school-board-races-more-politicized-than-ever-see-incumbents-fending-off-many-challengers
And here is a Channel 3 story: https://news3lv.com/news/local/ccsd-district-g-candidates-talk-school-safety-funding-and-staff-retention
Our next Vote Nevada meeting is this Saturday, May 21st, via Zoom, from 9 to 10:30 am. We will discuss the relationship between the school boards and the school district superintendents. You can RSVP here: https://vote-nevada.news/School-Board-Authority
Speaking of early voting, all registered voters will receive a Sample Ballot, with all the information about voting, and then everyone who did not opt out of receiving a mail-in ballot will receive a separate mail-in ballot. You can either use the mail-in ballot (please remember to sign the back of the envelope) or you can vote in person at any vote center.
If you vote in person, you can either surrender your mail-in ballot at the vote center when you sign in, or you will be asked to sign an affidavit swearing that you have not used and will not use your mail-in ballot.
If you use your mail-in ballot, you can either drop it in the mail or you can drop it in any of the drop boxes at the vote centers, the election departments, or other drop boxes listed in the Sample Ballot.
Also, because the legislature extended the time for the election departments to receive mail-in ballots postmarked by election day and to allow voters to add their signatures to their mail-in ballots if they returned the ballot without signing, we will not know the election winners until ten days after the June 14th election day, so June 24th.

I received this opportunity from an outside organization and I thought some of you might be interested:
We’re currently offering free Learning Labs: remote training sessions for people and organizations interested in learning about Artistic Activism methods and tactics and applying them to their work. All are welcome to apply to join. Currently, we’re giving special consideration to those working in organizations supporting U.S. democracy, which is why I wanted to reach out to you.
The Learning Labs are made up of six weekly meetings for a small group of selected participants, based in dynamic discussions and exercises. The sessions are facilitated by an international team of exceptional Workshop Leaders and supported by the Art of Activism book and workbook, which were written by our co-founders and published this past fall.
The dates for upcoming Labs:

Lastly, we are discussing our current Equal Rights Amendment (which will go into our state constitution if it passes in November) and what it would take to add a right to privacy to the US Constitution or our state constitution at our June 4th Vote Nevada meeting.
