Guarantees the ability for eligible Nevada voters who are being held pretrial to participate in elections.

Many individuals within jails are awaiting trial, meaning they have not been found guilty with any crime; these individuals should not have their right to vote taken away. Other individuals incarcerated within jails are serving misdemeanor sentences of less than one year, and will likely be impacted by the results of an election after they have been released and had their right to vote fully restored.

These voices should not be silenced during elections.
