The Hill: Nevada voters approve automatic voter registration

Abe Rakov, the chairman of Let America Vote, which works to end voter suppression, praised the ballot measure in a statement to the news service.

“Automatic voter registration is one of the best things a state can do to improve election security, increase voter participation and reduce costs,” Rakov said. “Congratulations to the people of Nevada for taking matters into their own hands by voting to make their elections fairer and more accessible for years to come.”

“Thanks to so many activists and organizations in the state, including our partner iVote, more eligible Nevadans are going to participate in our democracy,” he added. “We’re proud to have worked for this historic effort by knocking thousands of doors in support of Question 5 over the final weeks of the campaign.”
