Nevada Secretary of State Rebuffs Latest GOP Effort To Suppress Vote

Zachary Roth - October 22, 2008

Yesterday we told you about the latest GOP effort to make voting more difficult -- a letter sent by Nevada GOP chair Sue Lowden to Democratic Secretary of State Ross Miller, arguing that people should not be able to correct incomplete registrations on the spot when going to vote. Lowden claimed that Nevada law requires voter registration to be closed three weeks before election day, and that in such cases, people should be forced to cast provisional ballots.

Now Miller's office has responded with an interpretation of the law at issue, rejecting Lowden's argument.
