LAS VEGAS—The ACLU of Nevada celebrates the passage of Automatic Voter Registration. The nonprofit is grateful to all of the volunteers who contacted thousands and thousands of Nevadans by knocking on doors and making phone calls to get out the vote for AVR.

ACLU of Nevada Executive Director Tod Story said:

“We had a wonderful team of volunteers and staff working to expand voter registration opportunities in Nevada, and this win wouldn’t be possible without them. Through Question 5, we were able to communicate our support of modernizing the way Nevada registers its voters. Voting is the foundation of our democracy, and registration should be as easy, efficient and secure as possible. We will continue that effort in the 2019 legislative session. The ACLU of Nevada looks forward to assisting with the implementation of this measure with the relevant state agencies
