Please join the League of Women Voters of Southern Nevada on May 19th for a brainstorming session on increasing voter turnout. In Nevada, primary elections often have under 20 percent turnout, midterm general elections often have under 50 percent turnout, and some municipal elections often have under 10 percent turnout.
These numbers are scary in a representative democracy.
We simply must care as much about voter turnout as we do about voter suppression if we want effective and accountable government. Please help us by sharing your ideas for how to get more eligible voters to turnout to vote.
