It’s official: Anyone can vote in Nevada with mail-in ballots

It’s official.  Anyone who is eligible to vote in Nevada now has the right to vote with a “mail in” ballot.  Despite bitter opposition from a number of Republican lawmakers, the Democrats shoved Assembly Bill 4 through the process and on its way to the Governor’s desk for signing.

A number of Republican lawmakers supported President Trump’s claim that mail-in ballots invite ballot corruption although they produced no proof that such behavior is widespread.  Democrats maintain that the Republicans know they’re going to get a shellacking at the polls this fall due to President Trump’s plunge in voter confidence.

All registered voters can count on getting mail-in ballots for the November election much to the relief of many voters who don’t want to stand in crowded lines on election day waiting to vote – while also being exposed to asymmetrically infected voters who don’t even know they’re carrying and spreading the Covid-19 virus.

Federal judge opens the door for immigrant worker access to medical care in the U.S. during Covid-19 pandemic

A federal judge issued new injunctions this week blocking the public charge immigration rule during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will allow immigrant communities across Nevada and the rest of the country to access critical health care and public benefits during the current health crisis.

The public charge rule has worsened health disparities, especially for the Latino community, at a time when they are most hard hit by the lethal coronavirus. Here in Nevada many immigrant families decided not to access public benefits, even leaving their children without health insurance.  The judge’s ruling makes it easier for them to get health care for their families.

Governor Sisolak monitoring the virus, maximum customer numbers in bars, restaurants and casinos

Gov. Steve Sisolak
Monitoring Covid 19 behavior – still enforcing strict rules

From the Governor’s Office

In line with his recent announcement, Governor Steve Sisolak announced he signed Emergency Directive 029 extending previously issued directives that were set to expire on July 31.

This includes continuing statewide standards limiting business occupancy to 50 percent of fire code capacity and limiting gatherings to no more than 50 people. As announced earlier, bars, pubs and taverns in certain Nevada counties identified as having an elevated transmission risk will continue to remain closed as set forth in the directive until it is cancelled.

The directive also allows public agencies to continue their operations safely by extending the state Open Meeting Law providing alternative ways for boards, commissions, and agencies to allow public participation either over the phone or via the internet.

The State will transition to a long-term mitigation strategy for the state of Nevada which will be rolled out this week. The plan will utilize updated criteria based on trends to minimize the week-to-week or day-to-day Covid-19 fluctuations. This will identify which counties are getting better or worse revealing which counties should tighten up or loosen regulatory controls.

A state advisory group of public health, hospital, business enforcement and local government representatives will closely analyze the data for state-wide and local recommendations. They’ll monitor Nevada businesses in order to have advanced notice and understanding on what direction their county could be heading based on updated criteria. This group will work directly with local county officials on enhanced enforcement and other effective tactics to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Parents and Families Need to Communicate Intent for School by Aug. 5 

 Carson City, Nev. (July 29, 2020) — The Carson City School District School Board of Trustees approved the district’s proposed School Reopening Plan last night by a 4-3 vote. The trustees also voted to update the 2020-2021 Academic School Calendar, moving the official first day of school for students to begin Monday, Aug. 24, a week later than the day previously set for Monday, Aug. 17.  

As part of the approved reopening plan, the district needs all parents and families to communicate their student’s intent for the 2020-2021 school year as soon as possible and no later than Aug. 5. The reopening plan offers parents the opportunity to select whether their student(s) will participate in school via full-time online learning (recommended for students who have known medical issues or family members in high risk categories for COVID-19) or through a hybrid – blended learning model where students will attend in-person twice weekly and participate remotely three days each week.

An online Parent Intent Form (available on the district’s website and in Spanish here) needs to be completed and submitted by the parents or guardians of each student as soon as possible (no later than Wednesday, Aug. 5) so cohorts can be assigned and student schedules finalized. Students will either be assigned by individual school sites to Cohort 1 (in-person attendance: Tuesdays and Thursdays with remote learning Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) or Cohort 2 (in-person attendance: Wednesdays and Fridays with remote learning Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays). 

The school district emphasized that families with multiple students will be assigned to the same cohort, alleviating household scheduling conflicts. Also for ease, the Parent Intent Form allows families to submit one form per household instead of multiple forms for siblings.  

In addition to completing the Parent Intent Form, parents and guardians will still need to complete their annual online registration updates in Infinite Campus (IC) for each of their students. Families who have completed the IC updated for the coming school year will only need to complete the Parent Intent Form. 

The district also said the Parent Intent Form must be submitted electronically using desktop or mobile internet resources. Parents and families without access to internet or electronic mobile device means are asked to contact their school site or the district office for assistance.  

Students will also need to register for transportation (buses) this year, which will be submitted through the Parent Intent Form. As detailed in the reopening plan, buses will not exceed 42 seats (less than 50 percent occupancy).  

“This is obviously not the most ideal situation to face a return to school under these circumstances,” said Superintendent Richard Stokes. “Given the restrictions of social distancing and building occupancy, we understand there is not one plan that will meet everyone’s needs. All people will face some risk to return to school, but we are seeking to minimize risk the best way we can while still fulfilling our mission to empower students with skills, knowledge, values and opportunities for them to thrive and be contributing members of our community.”  

The reopening plan also detailed some additional considerations including  

  • Face masks for all (all students, employees, volunteers, visitors and contractors are required to wear face masks at school) 
  • Health wellness checks at home (conducted by parent or guardians) 
  • Social-distancing 
  • Limited school activities and visitors 
  • Employ cleaning and disinfecting protocols 
  • Follow local health agency guidance 
  • Nutrition Services available 
  • Social and Emotional Learning and Services 

The district has also provided a helpful Frequently Asked Questions document in both English and Spanish that should provide additional information.
