For 156 years, Nevada’s constitution has included the Board of Regents. That’s the 13-member panel of elected officials tasked with governing the state’s higher education system and the eight institutions that fall within it. Now, in 2020, Nevadans will get to vote on whether that inclusion was the right choice with Question 1, a ballot measure that would pull regents from the state constitution.

As Nevada’s unemployment crisis heads into its sixth month, some claimants are still in limbo in a system swamped by more than a million applications for benefits. There’s been a lawsuit. There’s also been new legislation passed in a special session.

La decisión de Nevada de expandir la votación por correo para las elecciones generales de noviembre se ha convertido en un campo de batalla partidista luego de que el equipo de campaña del Presidente Donald Trump interpuso una demanda para bloquear los cambios electorales que durante una sesión especial de verano implementó la Legislatura, dominada por la fracción Demócrata del estado.

Nevada’s decision to expand mail-in voting for the 2020 general election has become a partisan battleground, after President Donald Trump’s campaign sued to block the election changes put in place by the state’s Democratically-controlled Legislature in a summer special session.

But beyond the headlines, what changes do Nevada voters need to know about before the 2020 general election arrives on Nov. 3?
