Vote Nevada Supporters,
In honor of Memorial Day, I wanted to share some resources on the history of Memorial Day:
Early voting started Saturday and continues to June 10th. Each voter will receive a mail-in ballot unless the person opted out of receiving a mail-in ballot, but all voters will have a choice between completing the mail-in ballot or voting in person at any of the vote centers.
If you use your mail-in ballot, be sure to sign the back of the return envelope. You can then either drop the mail-in ballot in a mailbox or you can deliver it to any of the vote centers listed in your Sample Ballot. If you drop your mail-in ballot at a vote center, do not stand in line. Go right into the vote center and follow all instructions from election department poll workers and clerks for dropping off your ballot.
If you vote in person, you can either surrender your mail-in ballot or sign an affirmation that you will not use your mail-in ballot. Destroy your mail-in ballot after you vote in person.

This Saturday, June 4th, via Zoom, 9-10:30 am, we have a program to review the leaked draft of Justice Alito’s opinion on overturning Roe v. Wade. We will discuss how we can create a constitutional right to privacy as well as how we can pass an Equal Rights Amendment to our state constitution this November. You can RSVP here: https://vote-nevada.news/Right-To-Privacy
There is a Juneteenth Celebration at the College of Southern Nevada Charleston Campus on June 10th & 11th. The public is welcome to attend:
Lastly, after the primary election concludes on June 24th, many candidates and their supporters will be disappointed over not moving forward to the general election. I know I will feel frustrated again as candidates with good policy ideas lose and drift away.
To address these problems, this summer Vote Nevada would like to speak with losing candidates to continue discussing their policy proposals and implementation plans. We are also reviving our discussion about running more candidates as nonpartisans in the next election cycle that we started last summer.
If you would like to suggest candidates for us to invite to these discussions, please complete this form: https://forms.gle/iepqopbHykWtQTMT7
Related to this, I read an interesting article today by Ezra Klein that raised some interesting points about investing as much time and resources into creating government systems that can effectively implement policies as we do crafting good policy. Here is a copy of the article:
