Wednesday, Democrat Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed a bill that expands mail-in voting to all registered voters.
The bill requires local election officials to send out mail ballots before a primary or general election.
Sisolak said in a press release “At a time when State legislatures across the country are attempting to roll back access to the polls, I am so proud that Nevada continues to push forward with proven strategies that make voting more accessible and secure.”
“Nevada has always been widely recognized as a leader in election administration and with this legislation, we will continue to build on that legacy,” he added.
Nevada State Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson (D) said in a statement “While other states across the country move to make voting more restrictive, Nevada shines as a leader in protecting this fundamental sacred right. I’m honored to have played a part in expanding the freedom to vote in our beloved state.”
