Governor Sisolak and the Democrats recently passed Assembly Bill 4 mandating mail-in voting ballots be sent to every active voter for the coming General Election on November 3rd.
They did it without consulting Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, the state’s chief election officer, who already stated her intent to return to in-person Early Voting and Election Day voting, as well as absentee ballot mail voting.
The Democrats also approved ballot harvesting, which means ANYONE can collect mail ballots and turn them in for the voters. To be clear, I am totally against mailing a ballot to every voter and am especially concerned about ballot harvesting.
But if it’s going to happen, we all need to make sure we’re prepared to do our part to not only make sure our vote counts, but to make sure it’s an honest election that we can have confidence in the results.
There will be polling places available to vote in person. As much as you are able, go vote. There will be COVID-19 protocols in place, but no more stringent than what we now encounter at the grocery store, getting our hair done or dining out
If you have to vote by mail, find a way to get to a mailbox. Make sure you’ve filled it out correctly, signed the outside of the envelope and it’s sealed.

There may be canvassers at your door who will offer to take, or even fill out, your ballot for you. Fill out your own ballot and mail it yourself.
Every mailed envelope contains a valid ballot that can be counted as a valid vote if turned in. Help prevent fraud by removing unclaimed ballots that could be picked up and mailed in.
