Vote Nevada Supporters,
The next legislative deadline is this upcoming Friday, April 14th. Bills must be voted affirmatively out of committee in the legislative house of origination (the side of the legislature where the bill started) to stay alive.
Here are two interesting bills for this week:
Monday, April 10, 2023
Restorative justice needs adequate wraparound services, so we need more services for early learning and families.

Here are a few events for the next week:

Saturday, April 22nd, from 9:00 to 10:00 am, Vote Nevada is hosting a Zoom presentation from the No Labels Party. Similar to our meeting about the Forward Party, we will be hearing from a No Labels Party representative. You can RSVP here: https://vote-nevada.news/No-Labels-Party-Presentation
You can read about the No Labels Party here: https://www.nolabels.org/
With our nonpartisan voter registration surging each month, I am sure Nevada is on the radar of all the minor political parties. If we go into the 2024 election cycle with 40 percent of our voters not registered with a major political party, a lot of eyes will be on the Silver State. To watch a webinar with civil rights leader Dr. Ben Chavis from No Labels, the recording is here: https://youtu.be/06vzNkuDwCs
You can review Nevada’s voter registration data on the Nevadans for Election Reform website; Doug Goodman has been tracking Nevada’s voter registration data each month for many years: https://nevadansforelectionreform.org/blog/
