Skip to comments.ALERT! Same day voting and felon vote bills coming up in Nevada!
Posted on 03/20/2011 10:07:46 PM PDT by Loyal Sedition
Two bills are being heard in the Nevada Legislature next week that will greatly weaken our elections process, and that directly violate the Nevada Republican Party Platform, which says under the Citizenship section:
We oppose same-day registration and voting. We demand proof of U.S. citizenship and residency at the time of registration and authentic government issued photo identification at the time of voting.
AB108 is a very dangerous bill. It eliminates the deadline to register to vote for an election, and allows same-day registration and voting. This needlessly opens up the electoral process to significant fraud, and allows voters to register and vote without being informed at all on the issues. A voter that has studied the candidates and issues has given enough thought to the process to be able to register by the deadline required under current law. This bill must be defeated in order to maintain the integrity of the election process.
AB108 will have a hearing on Tuesday March 22 at 1:30 PM in the Assembly Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections. The hearing will be held in Room 3142 of the Legislative building, and will be videoconferenced to Room 4406 of the Grant Sawyer Office Building in Las Vegas.
Information on the bill is here: https://nelis.leg.state.nv.us/App#/Bill/Overview/AB108
If you cannot attend the hearing, comments on the bill may be made here: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/AppCF/Opinion/76th2011/Poll/
At this same hearing, AB301 will be heard which makes minor revisions to existing law regarding restoration of voting rights, juror eligibility and ability to hold public office for felons who have either completed their sentences or have been discharged from parole. Existing law adequately covers these provisions, and this new law would create some loopholes and conflicts in the law. For example, the bill states that the state must provide former felons whose rights have been restored with documents verifying this fact, but then adds language to the statutes prohibiting county clerks from requiring the person show them this documentation.

It was made very clear he supports them.
These will probably pass the committee unless we can assert a MASSIVE opposition campaign.
Dems building their base. And proud of it.
We are being invaded and it is our government who is at the switch,,,
Where does Gov Sandoval stand on this bill?
I believe he support our state republican platform, which states-
We oppose same-day registration and voting.
We demand proof of U.S. citizenship and residency at the time of registration and authentic government issued photo identification at the time of voting.
Reed trying to clean up the mess of trying to get all of those illegals in lost wages, registered in a more timely manner with out all of the bribe money.
The Rep. Legislature in Wisconsin is set to repeal this kind of legislation. Nevada has a Republican Governor and surely he wont let this fly.
Feline voting, for sure. And canine. Free cat treats and dog biscuits for everybody.
Why this isn't a concern for all American voters is beyond me. What is the big problem with proving you have the right to vote? Yeah, I know the Dims want anyone to vote for their gimme constiguents. This is as basic as it gets...kinda like showing you are qualified to hold public office or the presidential office, especially.
We're going down boys and girls. Rise up and rebel or sit in your room with the TV. Personally, I'm just about to live my life in front of my TV, since so few will revolt against the encroaching totalitarianism.
Call me when you really want to do something about it. I'm at end days so don't give a sh*t anymore. I tried once upon a time, to no avail. It was great experiment while it lasted, but until I see a real uprising, count me out of your useless political efforts. The "gimmes" are close to becoming the majority. Once that happens - all bets are off.
Glad to watch American Idol tomorrow. At least I hear some good music till the Gestapo says I can't.
ANV- don’t despair. It does seem hopeless and inevitable that our country will fall, but we do need to keep the faith and be ready for opportunities that present themselves. Stopping SDV is something that can be done.
