Nevadans may get another weekend of early voting. Assembly Bill 272 would allow county elections officials to have early voting last until the Sunday before Election Day. Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson, D-Las Vegas, told the Senate Legislative Operations and Elections Committee on Wednesday that the measure is intended to increase voter access.
“This allows them to keep it open through the weekend if they’re able to,” Frierson said. “It doesn’t mandate it.”
The optional nature of the bill takes into account some counties that may not have the time to move voting machines back to polling places by Election Day, he said.
