LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Sisolak’s veto hurts voters

As a constituent of Gov. Steve Sisolak, I am writing to express my total disbelief and disappointment with his veto of the National Popular Vote bill.

This bill would have been an important step toward improving our electoral system and encouraging voter participation. If passed, it would have made every Nevadan’s voice count, as well as the voices of every other U.S. voter.

I understand that there is a long way to go to achieve this goal. Unfortunately, Sisolak’s veto gave us a disappointing setback on the road to fair and just presidential elections.
