State Legislature Must Protect Freedom and Democracy for All Nevadans

AB 321 is crucial to ensuring access to the ballot 

LAS VEGAS—All Voting is Local Nevada State Director Kerry Durmick issued the following statement in response to the introduction of AB 321, proactive voter-focused legislation which requires county clerks and registrars to mail a ballot to each registered, active Nevada voter for every election, secures ballot drop box availability, and extends the deadline for Native American tribal governments to request a polling place: 

“Voting by mail is safe, secure, and convenient—pandemic or not—and lawmakers must pass AB 321 to ensure it remains an option for all Nevadans. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Nevada lawmakers, election officials, and state offices did the right thing and adjusted election procedures to make sure that we could all vote safely. But it shouldn’t take a public health crisis to protect Nevadans’ right to vote. 

“AB 321 is the right step in ensuring that all Nevada voters have the freedom to vote how we choose.”
