The Nevada secretary of state’s office is warning residents about inaccurate voting information being distributed by the U.S. Postal Service.
The Postal Service mailed voters a postcard with information on how to vote by mail, including how soon to request an absentee ballot, and Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske said in a statement Saturday that the postcard contains false information.
“Pursuant to Assembly Bill 4 recently passed by the Nevada Legislature and signed by Governor Sisolak, all active registered voters in Nevada will automatically receive mail-in ballot for the 2020 general election,” the statement read. “
Voters who wish to vote by mail do not need to request a mail in or absentee ballot this year. Additionally, all ballot return envelopes are postage prepaid, meaning voters do not need to add any postage to their ballot return envelope in order to vote by mail.”
The office said it was not told about the postcards before they were mailed or consulted for input.
It was learned that postcards were mailed to every mailing address in the county, and some households already might have received them and just discovered on Friday, September 11, 2020, and is expected to be received by EVERY ADDRESS within the next week.
