Letter of Support for Nevada Re-enfranchisement Law

The following is a letter on behalf of Campaign Legal Center encouraging Governor Sisolak to sign AB 431, milestone legislation that would restore the right to vote to more than 77,000 Nevadans. AB 431 will not only re-enfranchise tens of thousands of individuals, it will remove barriers to voting that have long blocked Nevadans with convictions from the ballot box. By limiting and simplifying its law, Nevada will also avoid potential conflicts with federal law that exist under the current disenfranchisement scheme. We are thrilled that the Nevada legislature has voted to end this dark chapter in Nevada's democracy and we urge the Governor to sign it into law as soon as possible.
