Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada Supports Fair, Expansive Nevada Mail-In Elections

Expansion of Mail-In Voting Access Is An Integral Part to Ensuring Fair Elections in 2020

Reno, NV — Last week, the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Nevada State Democratic Party, and Priorities USA filed a lawsuit in Clark County Nevada in an effort to expand voting access for Nevada’s primary on June 9th.

The lawsuit seeks to remediate Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske’s current mail-in election process to be more inclusive by:

  • mailing ballots to ALL registered voters, not just active registered voters,
  • increasing the number of in-person polling locations to reflect the size and demographic needs of each county,
  • and barring the state’s ballot assistance and voter rejection rules, which, if enforced, could lead to the disproportionate disenfranchisement of voters with disabilities, elderly voters, and voters who speak English as a second language.


Statement from Lindsey Harmon, Executive Director, Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada:  

“Voter suppression in any form is a failure of the democratic process, and in Nevada, we honor our long history of supporting expansive, fair elections. While the move to mail-in elections in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 is an important step in protecting the health and well-being of Nevadans, it is absolutely vital that the mail-in voting process reflects Nevada’s long-standing commitment to ensuring that every eligible Nevadan can vote. Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada is supportive of efforts to ensure that accessible voting in Nevada remains a top priority and that the state takes efforts to expand voting access.”
