You still have time to Register to Vote in Nevada

Check if you’re already registered to vote
Perhaps you registered to vote but you never received a voter registration card. Or maybe you just can’t remember when or where you’re registered. Rock the Vote provides you with a search option that allows you to check your voter registration status!

If you think you’re registered in Nevada, you can go directly to the Nevada Secretary of State website to search.

Register to Vote
Where should you vote? If you haven’t registered to vote, decide if you want to vote in Washoe County or if you want to vote in the county or state where you came from before coming to school.

HuffPost: Nevada Leads the Way for Women in Politics

Please join HuffPost and the Reno Gazette Journal, in partnership with ASUN and the Nevada Sagebrush, for this conversation about women in Nevada politics.

Nevada could become the first state with a female majority in its legislature. On top of that, its congressional delegation has gender parity. Women are clearly making advances nationwide this election cycle, but there are still significant challenges to increasing representation. With a distinguished panel of journalists and female politicians, we’ll explore what makes Nevada different from so many other states and how having more female representation affects politics and legislative decisions.

Our discussion will be moderated by HuffPost Washington bureau chief Amanda Terkel and will feature the following panelists:

  • Teresa Benitez-Thompson, Majority Floor Leader of the Nevada State
  • Assembly; Marsha Berkbigler, Washoe County Commissioner;
  • Anjeanette Damon, the Reno Gazette Journal’s government watchdog reporter;
  • Sue Wagner, the former lieutenant governor of Nevada.

The event is part of HuffPost’s “Listen to America” RV tour — a two-week journey through five Western states to talk about issues affecting communities in California, Nevada, Idaho, Arizona and Colorado. Learn more about the tour and what’s happening on the route.

Wednesday, October 10

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the event will start at 6 p.m.
