Formal name: State Constitutional Rights of Voters Amendment
Type of measure: Legislative resolution to amend the Nevada Constitution
Summary of what it does: If approved, it would add a list of 11 voting rights and privileges — known as the Voters’ Bill of Rights — to the state Constitution.
That list of rights was added to state law in 2002, following passage of the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) in 2002 that required states to post voter instructions, rights and information at polling places.
The list of provisions in the current “Voters’ Bill of Rights” — which under this ballot question would be added to the Constitution — includes the following:
- Receive and cast a ballot that is written in a format that allows the clear identification of candidates and accurately records the voter’s selection of candidates
