As we slowly begin to inch our way towards this season’s local elections, your familia at Make the Road Nevada wants to provide you with all of the information regarding how to prepare for the primaries, how to register to vote and more. 

We have partnered with three organizations: the American Civil Liberties Union, Silver State Voices and All Voting is Local, who have provided us with more detailed information to make this process easier for you. 

“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and democracy truly works when everyone has access to the ballot box,”  said Sadmira Ramic, an American Civil Liberties Union staff attorney. “It is a fundamental right for a reason—without it, our country, states and communities would not be representative of its citizens. At times it might seem like one individual’s vote does not matter, but that could not be further from the truth.” 

It’s important that before you cast your ballot, you are informed of your rights, what the process will look like and who the candidates of this critical election are. Individuals should research political and social issues as well as the candidates and their work before making a decision.

Over the years there have been a series of election bills passed to make it easier for all Nevadans to access the ballot boxes. There are several steps to take to ensure that you and anyone else who qualifies, can vote in this year’s election, where and how. The first step: register to vote. 

How to Register to Vote

Voters can register to vote online using the Nevada Secretary of State’s website: https://www.nvsos.gov/SOSVoterServices/start.aspx

Here you can also update or cancel any existing voter registration. If you prefer not to register online, you can also register to vote by filling out a mail-in voter registration form and mailing it to the county clerk/register provided here: https://www.nvsos.gov/SOSVoterRegForm/home.aspx

Three Ways to Vote:

  1. Vote by Mail-In Ballot
  2. Vote Early 
  3. Go to a Vote Center on Election Day

What Do I Need to Register to Vote Online?

A current and valid Driver’s License or an Identification Card issued by the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.

If you are unable to provide either of these, you must register in person with your county election office or mail in a paper application. 

What Do I Need in Person to Register Same-Day?

  • Current and Valid Nevada Driver’s License
  • Proof of Residency
  • A Nevada DMV “Interim Document”

On Sunday, May 1st, Make the Road Nevada, CHISPA, the Culinary Union Local 226, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, members, and allies marched down the Las Vegas strip for immigrant workers, union labor, and for a pathway to citizenship. 

The member-led march accumulated about 100 attendees who started at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino’s fountains. We made our way through the influx of tourists and passersby in ‘Immigrants Are Essential’ shirts. Attendees also carried posters that read “Nothing Less Than Citizenship,” and “President Biden, Keep Your Promise,” in our beaming yellow and blue.

Our Immigration Justice Organizer, Rico Ocampo led the group alongside chant leaders: our Environmental Justice Organizer, Jose Rivera and our member leader, Edgardo. Collectively chanting: 

El pueblo unido, Jamas sera vencido The people united, Will never be defeated

________________

What do we want?, Citizenship When do we want it?, Now! Que Queremos? , Ciudadanía Cuando?, Ahora!

And more. As we finally approached the New York-New York Hotel & Casino’s Statue of Liberty, we circled around the statue as our MCs, Economic Justice Organizer, Abe Lugo and member leader, Fary took the mic to introduce the evening’s speakers. 

“In today’s program, you will hear the stories of workers, children of immigrants, and people directly affected by immigration policy,” said Lugo. 

 

Lugo and Fary welcomed Medinah Yusufzai, a first-generation Afghan American daughter of two Afghan refugees who escaped Afghanistan during the Soviet Union invasion and immigrated to the United States. They also welcomed Febe Rodriguez, a Culinary Union Local 226 member who was once undocumented by now uses her citizenship status to advocate for union labor laws and advocate by those directly impacted by immigration injustices. More speakers shared their stories, as well. 

Thank you to all those who attended the May Day and made this happen. A huge thank you to CHISPA, the Culinary Union Local 226, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and your members.  

Thank you to Artkore for printing our materials, including our shirts, posters, banners, and flyers. 

And special thank you to each and everyone of our members for this powerful, member-led march.
