NV Dems Statement on Secretary of State’s Move to Limit Voter Assistance

Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Molly Forgey released the following statement in response to Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske’s move to limit voter assistance in the November election:

“As our country suffers from a virus made worse by this administration, Democrats worked to expand safe voting options for Nevadans to ensure no eligible voter had to choose between their health and their constitutional right to vote. This move by the Secretary of State is clearly a partisan attempt to make it more difficult to implement voter assistance laws and closely resembles Trump and the GOP’s voter suppression playbook. More than half of states have implemented voter assistance laws and they are especially appropriate given our current pandemic. Trump and Republicans will do whatever it takes to prevent more voices from being heard because they know it’s how they’ll lose.”
