Nevada: Final-Five Voting
Campaign Status: Active
Final-five voting (open primaries + ranked choice voting in the general election) for U.S. Senate and congressional races, legislative elections and statewide office positions.
The only voters who can currently participate in Nevada’s primary elections are those registered as Republican or Democrat even though nearly 30% of Nevada voters are officially registered as “non-partisan.”
In the 2022 election, a majority of Nevada voters approved Final-Five Voting via a ballot measure. Voters must approve the measure one more time in the 2024 election for the proposal to become law. If passed, Nevada will become the third state in the nation to implement RCV statewide.
RepresentUs is working with the Yes on 3 campaign and a coalition of partners and community groups to lay the groundwork for the 2024 vote and ensure there is support to pass the measure.
You can make an impact on this campaign no matter where you live.
