Voting is the foundation of our democracy, and the ACLU of Nevada is working to protect that right. We’re a proud member of the Let Nevadans Vote coalition, and we work each election to make sure voters have the information they need to participate and to monitor potential issues at the polls through our Election Protection Program.

This information is provided to help you protect your right to vote. The ACLU doesn't endorse or oppose any candidate or party, but we believe that no civil right is more important in our democracy than the right to vote.


The COVID-19 pandemic has thousands of Nevadans concerned about the health and safety of their families, friends, and loved ones. The ACLUNV and our colleague organizations fought to secure additional voting options during this unprecedented election to make sure no one has to choose between their safety and their right to cast a ballot.
