Vote Nevada Supporters,
I hope you are spending time with family and friends and staying safe in the heat.
The 2022 primary is now certified, with one exception, the Republican governor race. You can view the final numbers here: https://silverstateelection.nv.gov/
The recount of the Republican governor race is completed with Joe Lombardo losing 8 votes and Joey Gilbert losing 7 votes. There may also be a legal challenge to the process, however.
The Better Voting Nevada ballot initiative to move to an open top-five primary with rank choice voting turned in approximately 266,000 signatures with about 141,000 needed to qualify. The clerks and registrars verify the signatures gathered in each county, so, we are waiting for an announcement that a sufficient number of signatures have been submitted to qualify the question for the November ballot. Additionally, the Nevada Supreme Court ruled 4 to 3 to dismiss the legal challenge against the question.
If you are interested in a short explanation of the ballot question, here is a video explainer: https://vote-nevada.news/What-Is-Better-Voting-Nevada
