#Petition1NV: Support Automatic Voter Registration on 3/6/17 at the Legislature

Initiative Petition One seeks to automatically register most Nevada residents to vote when they submit an application for a driver’s license or citizen identification card, opting in all residents to vote.

TAKE ACTION: Support automatic voter registration in Nevada on Monday, March 6 at 3:30 pm at the Senate Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections hearing for #Petition1NV.

From the Reno Gazette-Journal:

Currently, people have the option to register to vote when visiting the DMV. The initiative before the Legislature would alter that to an opt-out system, where people decline to register instead….

The proposal still has a long way to go before it reaches Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval’s desk. Because it is a voter-initiated petition and not a piece of legislation, lawmakers have 40 days from the start of session to pass it through both chambers. Otherwise, it will go to voters as a ballot question in 2018.
