ELECTION INTEGRITY

MISSION: Implement Trustworthy Nevada Elections In 4 Areas

POLICIES & GOALS

1. PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP & DOMICILE


  • Enforce the current election law. Only U.S. Citizens have rights to register and vote in local, state and national elections.
  • Require proof of citizenship & domicile when registering to vote.
  • Verification of citizenship by linking Secretary of State voter rolls and Homeland Security secured data base.

2. VOTER VALIDATION


  • Consider votes to be much more valuable than gold.
  • Prevent fraudulent voting by requiring valid IDs before voting.
  • Require law enforcement to detect, investigate and prosecute fraudulent registration and voting as a felony.

  3. ENSURE SYSTEM SECURITY


  • Implement chain-of-custody and audit records for manual and machine ballot processing.
  • Conduct background checks for financial fraud and misconduct on election employees, contractors and volunteers prior to each election cycle.
  • Ensure election security provisions meet federal computer system security criteria similar to banking regulations and procedures.

  4. INDEPENDENT VERIFICATION


   Propose amendments to state and federal statutes and regulations to:
  • Allow candidates for public office to independently verify ballot handling integrity procedures and have open access to audit selected sealed ballot records for up to 10{4dbcca007145f141f20e946969c983518eb28ccc51b99ee288767f9853e910df} of precincts in their districts without fees or other charges.
  • Authorize District Attorneys to open county sealed election records at any time without having to obtain court orders to investigate suspected election fraud and system failures.

ACTIONS TAKEN


           2015 Results:  NV Secretary of State opposed AB209 and Assembly Elections Committee Chair did not allow debate or a vote on AB209 stating that the total election system was fully protected from all kinds of failures and fraud.  However, there were no independent audits or expert studies with evidence to support the Secretary of State organizational claims.
