Bills Changing Early Voting, Registration Rules Move Forward

Posted: Updated:
Several bills to change rules on early voting and voter registration have passed their first hurdles in the Nevada Legislature.

The Senate Legislative Operations and Elections Committee approved Senate Bill 433 on Friday, which allows early voting sites to remain open until 8 p.m. A Democratic proposal allowing the sites to remain open longer failed.

The committee passed Senate Bill 331, which would allow the Department of Motor Vehicles to forward voter registration information to the appropriate county clerk if the applicant chooses. The current procedure involves paper forms.

A measure that would allow 17-year-olds to pre-register to vote is moving forward as part of Senate Bill 203.

The panel also advanced Senate Bill 436, which requires people who intend to register more than 50 people to vote in a year to register with the Secretary of State.
