New 2022 'VoteSmartNV' Website Launches
Wednesday, September 14, 2022
A new nonpartisan website full of 2022 General Election information specifically for Nevada is now live on the internet.
VoteSmartNV.org lets people know how to register and lists candidates, voting sites, and much more.
Brian Harris, voter education organizer at the Institute for a Progressive Nevada, which coproduced the guide with the group Silver State Voices, explained the goal is to inform.
"We want this tool to be used by Nevada voters to educate them on who's going to be on their ballot, and how easy and accessible it is to vote this year in the General Election," Harris emphasized.
All registered voters in Nevada will receive a mail-in ballot, which can be mailed or dropped off at any early voting location, even on Election Day. This November, the governorship, one of Nevada's U.S. Senate seats, all congressional districts and many state, county, and local elected offices will be up for grabs.
Harris noted the groups putting the guide together are not endorsing any candidates or taking sides on the issues. He stressed they posed the same set of questions to state and federal candidates on a variety of issues, from voting rights and gun ownership, to immigration, mining laws and abortion.
"These candidates got to respond to these questions that we asked them in their own words, we did not alter or edit their responses," Harris pointed out. "So, this is really a way for voters to understand who will be up for election this year, and how they see questions from committee organization."
The guide also lists important election-related dates in Nevada. For example, if you want a ballot mailed to you, the last day to register or update your registration online is Oct. 25. And early voting runs from Oct. 22 through Nov. 4.
