Election protection hotline launched in Nevada

LAS VEGAS—Nevadans now have a hotline to call to report voting issues during the primary election. The Let Nevadans Vote coalition has launched the Election Protection Program to monitor a hotline and send observers to monitor in-person polling places during early voting and on Primary Election Day. 

Voters can call 866-OUR-VOTE to report voting issues.

Recent changes to Nevada’s voting procedures spurred the creation of the program, which is aimed at making sure every eligible voter has a chance to cast a ballot.

The voting rights package passed by the Nevada Legislature in 2019 with Assembly Bill 345 codifies best practices, such as:

  • Allowing county and city clerks to designate polling places where anyone registered in their county or city may vote.
  • Allowing voters to register or update their registration online.
  • Creating the ability for Nevadans to register on the day of an election.
  • Allowing anyone to request absentee ballots for all elections, rather than having to request every election.

2020 is also the first major election to take place since Nevada voters approved Automatic Voter Registration in 2018.

Let Nevadans Vote member organizations include the ACLU of Nevada, Silver State Voices, and Battle Born Progress.
