LWVN Legislative Action Alert
A bill to change our appointed elections officials into elected officers, SB118, has been scheduled for a hearing on Monday, February 11, at 4:00 pm. Please contact members of the Senate Legislative Operations Committee to ask that we not change how Nevada administers and manages voter registration and elections. We need less political influence over voter registration and election administration, not more. This bill is addressing problems that do not exist and could lead to partisan manipulations we’ve seen in other states appearing in Nevada.
You can read the bill here: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Bill/6117/Overview
You can email members of the Legislative Operations Committee
- James Ohrenschall – Chair
- Nicole J. Cannizzaro – Vice Chair
- Yvanna D. Cancela
- Heidi Seevers Gansert
- Keith F. Pickard
Please request a no vote on SB118 to keep politics out of voter registration and election administration.
If you would like to testify in-person:
- Room 2144 of the Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson St., Carson City, NV.
- Room 4412 of the Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV.
