Since the overturning of Roe v. Wade, there has been an increased focus on individual state abortion laws. Pro-abortion forces are taking drastic measures, such as proposing amendments to state constitutions. Pro-lifers are pushing back, working diligently to ensure every state is safe for both the unborn and their mothers. On this page, we will provide you with the latest updates in Nevada and when we have information on how you can help, we will provide that.
State Ballot Initiative Pertaining to Abortion
Abortion advocates are pushing to enshrine abortion access and other reproductive rights in the Nevada state constitution, taking a cue from other states that have successfully codified those rights after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade last year.
Nevadans for Reproductive Freedom ― a coalition made up of Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada and the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada ― submitted a petition with Nevada’s secretary of state’s office on Thursday, September 14 seeking to ask voters to preserve those protections with a constitutional amendment.
Nevada Ballot Information
In February, Nevada Republican voters are expected to be able to choose from two entirely different ballots for the 2024 presidential nomination.
On one -- for the caucus held by the Nevada Republican Party on Feb. 8 -- will be former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, businessman and commentator Vivek Ramaswamy, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and pastor and entrepreneur Ryan Binkley.
And on the other -- for the state-run primary on Feb. 6 -- will be former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott and Vice President Mike Pence, along with some long shot candidates.
While Nevada voters can cast ballots in both the caucus and primary, the latter slate of hopefuls are competing for a symbolic victory. The 26 Nevada delegates that will help determine who wins the Republican nomination will be awarded only through the caucus, not the primary.
