Appeal From the Eighth Judicial District Court The Honorable Rob Bare, District Court Judge APPELLANT’S MOTION FOR STAY {Non-Emergency Action Requested by March 3-14, 2014} Plaintiff/Appellant, JOHN BONAVENTURA, individually, and in capacity

14 as an elected official LAS VEGAS TOWNSHIP CONSTABLE (hereinafter, 15 “Plaintiff”), by and through attorney, ROBERT B. POOL, ESQ., pursuant to NRAP 16 Rule 8(a)(2), respectfully submits this motion for Order: (1) To stay the year-in-advance premature enforcement of Clark County 17 18 Ordinance 2.14.10 (not effective until January 4, 2015 and for which no authority 19 exists for premature enforcement), seeking to abolish the Office of the Las Vegas 20 Township Constable (“Office”), which was enacted under authority of an 21 unconstitutional statute, NRS 258.010(3), (3)(b), and in violation of Nevada Open 22 Meeting Law, Due Process and Equal Protection; and (2) As a practical extension of the stay, to direct Defendant and the Clark 23 24 County Department of Election to allow the Plaintiff to file as a Candidate for 25 public office during the March 3-14, 2014 filing deadlines in the same manner as 26 the current remaining ten (10) Clark County Constables.

Docket 63104 Document 2014-03829

1 restraining order and preliminary injunction in connection with County Ordinance 2 2.14.10 seeking to abolish the Office of the Las Vegas Township Constable 3 (“Office”), that was enacted under authority of an unconstitutional statute, NRS 4 258.010(3), (3)(b), and in violation of Nevada Open Meeting Law, Due Process 5 and Equal Protection. The case is currently in, and is expected to complete, 6 screening, in anticipation of an order setting oral arguments. 7 The Ordinance 2.14.10, as presently constructed, is not effective, nor
1 8 potentially enforceable, until “11:59 p.m. January 4, 2015.” ARGUMENT SUMMARY & RELEVANT PROCEDURAL HISTORY 9 II.

10

On March 18, 2013, by oral decision, the district court, despite the likelihood

11 of success on the merits, arbitrarily denied the request for TRO and preliminary 2 12 injunction. The following day, on March 19, 2013, Defendant conducted a 13 hearing on the proposed ordinance. The overall public hearing was in support of 14 not abolishing the office. There was neither a finding of necessity presented nor
3 15 any hard facts in support of abolition. During the discussions, Commissioner Giunchiliani admitted to violating the 16

17 Open Meeting Law when she personally contacted and met with another public 18 officer to discuss the abolition of the office (without Plaintiff), followed by a study 19 trip made to Washoe County, and presented the findings to the Defendant outside 4 20 of a public meeting. 21 On this admission, the Sheriff appeared to clarify that it was a conversation 22 that started with Assistant Manager Wells at the request of the Commissioner.

5 1 Sheriff stated the same job cannot be done by Metro under the present budget. After a statement by the Commissioners that making a finding was not 2 6 3 something to “hang your hat on,” and that the Board “can do whatever it wants,” 4 the motion was made with: “. . . . the Board . . . having made a finding . .” (but not

5 seconded, although the later vote was unanimous), to abolish the Office. The Ordinance 2.14.10 was slated to become effective at “11:59 p.m. 6
7 7 January 4, 2015.” On April 15, 2013, the district court entered the Order8 denying motion for 8

9 temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction. On April 29, 2013, the 9 10 Notice of Appeal, Designation of Record and Association of Counsel were timely
10 11 filed. On April 30, 2013, the district court case was stayed. On January 24, 2014, Plaintiff “pre-registered” online as a Candidate for the 12

13 Office of the Las Vegas Township Constable (Exhibit 1 attached). On February 3, 2014, Plaintiff was informed by the Clark County Election 14 15 Department that the Department had been instructed on April 15, 2013 (date of 16 Order from which appealed) not to list the office or allow the Plaintiff to appear on 17 a ballot with the ten (10) current Constables in Clark County, despite the April 30, 18 2013 stay order. Plaintiff was then provided the 2014 Candidate Guide dated 19 January 22, 2014, but not online until February 3, 2014 (Exh. 2,19-20, 41-42). 20 21 22 23

Filing deadlines for non-judicial public office are March 3-14, 2014. There is no authority in Nevada Constitution or Statute or the Clark County

3 Code which allows for year-in-advance premature enforcement of the ordinance 4 before its effective date, and such premature enforcement is a violation of the April 5 30, 2013 district court stay, is per se illegal, and a denial of Equal Protection. Further, Defendant’s own arguments within Respondent’s Answering Brief 6 7 give rise to two differing interpretations of the applicability of NRS 258.010(3)(b) 8 to Ordinance 2.14.10 in such a way as the ordinance can neither be enforced prior 9 to its effective date of January 4, 2015, nor after that date until the general election 10 is decided and the Plaintiff, as the present incumbent, “does not seek, or is defeated 11 for, reelection” - if at all. This case hinges on constitutionality and due process, and the stay should 12 13 be granted as: (1) the Plaintiff is likely to prevail on the merits in the appeal; (2) the 14 object of the appeal could be defeated if the stay is denied; (3) the Plaintiff will 15 suffer irreparable or serious injury if the stay is denied; and (4) a stay at this time 16 will result in minimal cost and burden on the Defendant, as opposed to an increase 17 in cost due to special election should Plaintiff prevail. NRAP 8(c). 18 III. APPLICABLE LAW 19 Plaintiff incorporates the facts, information and law as stated with the 20 Appellant’s Reply Brief (14-00600) and makes a part hereof by reference. A. Premature Enforcement Violates Prohibition Special/Local Law 21 22 The Ordinance 2.14.10 is not effective, nor enforceable, until “11:59 23 p.m. January 4, 2015.” Simply stated, there can be nothing more special than the 24 intentional year-in-advance enforcement of an ordinance founded on an 25 unconstitutional “Special/Local” law. In the Respondent’s Answering Brief, Defendant failed to directly 26 27 respond to the citation to Legislative History and Plaintiff’s reliance on Nev. Const. 28 Art. IV, Sec. 20, 21 as decided by this Court in Masto v. Gypsum Resources, 129 Nev.Adv.Op. 4, 294 P.3d 404 (2013) (prohibits special or local laws that seek to 4

1 regulate county business). Defendant instead cited in error to C.G. Wallace, Inc. 2 v. Eighth Judicial District Court, 127 Nev. Adv. Op. 64, 262 P.3d 1135 (2011), a
11 3 claim preclusion and eviction case, which falls in favor of Plaintiff’s argument. Further, Defendant’s answering argument is even more conflicting. If 4

5 NRS 258.010(3), (3)(b), is clear on its face as Defendant would argue, then it is 6 both a “local” and “special” law enacted to regulate the county business of the Las 7 Vegas Township and its Constable’s Office as it existed for the incumbent on May 8 28, 1979 with Clark County and Las Vegas Township being the only entities 9 meeting the requirements on that date. If, however, as Defendant argues, it is not a special or local law, then 10 11 a second, and equally reasonable interpretation arises that Defendant’s abolition 12 of the Office cannot become effective until after Plaintiff, as the present incumbent, 13 “does not seek, or is defeated for, reelection.” As will be discussed in greater detail below, under Defendant’s 14 15 argument, both of the above interpretations could be reasonable. Thus, this Court 16 is required to determine the Legislature’s intent by construing NRS 258.010(3), 17 (3)(b) in accordance with reason, public policy, and in a manner that avoids an 12 18 absurd result. Wallace, citing Great Basin Water Network v. State Eng’r. 19 While “legislative enactments enjoy the presumption of 20 constitutionality,” County of Clark v. City of Las Vegas, 97 Nev. 260, 628 P.2d 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28

“As we have explained, “this court must give [a statute’s] terms their plain meaning, considering its provisions as a whole so as to read them in a way that would not render words or phrases superfluous or make a provision nugatory.” Southern Nev. Homebuilders v. Clark County, 121 Nev. 446, 449, 117 P.3d 171, 173 (2005) (internal quotation omitted). ‘When a statute is clear and unambiguous, we give effect to the plain and ordinary meaning of the words and do not resort to the rules of construction.’ Cromer v. Wilson, 126 Nev. ___, ___, 225 P.3d 788, 790 (2010). When a statute is ambiguous, however, meaning it is capable of more than one reasonable interpretation, we ascertain the Legislature’s intent by analyzing the statute’s legislative history and construing the statute in accordance with reason and public policy. Great Basin Water Network v. State Eng’r, 126 Nev. ___, ___, 234 P.3d 912, 918 (2010). In addition, ‘we must construe ambiguous statutes so as to avoid absurd results.’ Star Ins. Co. v. Neighbors, 122 Nev. 773, 776, 138 P.3d 507(2006).”

1 1120 (1981), the Legislative and County History of NRS 258.010(3), (3)(b) clearly 2 demonstrate that the statute enacted as 1979 A.B.358 was intended both as a 3 special and local law and remedy to address problems and issues in the regulation 4 of business of the Office of the Las Vegas Township occurring in Clark County. 5 Counties other than Clark County were intentionally separated into 6 NRS 258.010(3)(a), and NRS 258.010(3)(b) was intended solely for Clark County, 7 as shown by the amendments deliberately segregating Clark County by its 8 population. All Minutes of the Legislative Committees over the years specifically 9 address “Clark County” and “Las Vegas Township” locally and specially from all 10 other counties included in NRS 258.010(3)(a). In this instance, the local law is made even more special by pertaining 11 12 only to the 1979 incumbent of Las Vegas Township, NRS 258.010(3)(b): “[T]he 13 abolition does not become effective until the constable incumbent on May 28, 1979, 14 does not seek, or is defeated for, reelection.” “A law is local if it operates over `a particular locality instead of over 15 16 the whole territory of the State.'" Masto, citing Clean Water Coalition v. The M 17 Resort, 127 Nev. ___, 255 P.3d 247 (2011), quoting Damus v. County of Clark, 93 18 Nev. 512, 516, 569 P.2d 933, 935 (1977). A similar matter was addressed by the Nevada Supreme Court in 19 20 County of Clark v. City of Las Vegas, 97 Nev. 260, 628 P.2d 1120 (1981), when 21 NRS 280.100 was found to be unconstitutional as originally enacted because it 22 included the date of July 1, 1973. The Court found "upon a fair reading" that the 23 date operated as an absolute cutoff beyond which no additional cities or counties 24 would be compelled by law to merge. Since Clark County and Las Vegas were the 25 only entities meeting the requirements on that date, as in this instance, the Court 26 found the statute to be impermissible special legislation. The defect was later 27 remedied by legislative enactment - a cure not afforded NRS 258.010(3)(b). 28 The Court reviews statutory construction denovo, Masto v. Gypsum 6

1 Resources, supra. Applied to NRS 258.010(3), (3)(b), the intent of the legislature 2 was clear to create a local and special, albeit unconstitutional, law. Woofter v. 3 O'Donnell, 91 Nev. 756, 542 P.2d 1396 (1975). The district court identified the principle and the case, but erred in 4 5 light of these principles that NRS 258.010(3) is unconstitutional. NRS 258.010(3), 6 (3)(b) is clearly both a special and a local law regulating county business 7 conducted in Las Vegas Township - violating Art. IV, Sec.’s 20 & 21 of the 8 Nevada Constitution. 9 NRS 258.010(3), (3)(b) also violates Art. IV, Sec. 25 by creating a 10 nonuniform system of township county government within Clark County - one 11 which does not apply equally to all constable’s offices throughout the county and 12 does not fall within any recognized exception to the Nevada Constitution. Accordingly, the illegal year-in-advance premature enforcement of an 13 14 ordinance based on an unconstitutional statute is equally unconstitutional. B. Premature Enforcement Violates Uniform Township Government 15 16 Incorporating the above argument, and making a part by reference, we 17 begin in 1922, when the Office of the Constable was addressed by the Nevada 18 Supreme Court in Moore v. Humboldt County, 46 Nev. 220, 204 P. 880 (1922). 19 The Court ruled, that while the legislature may not abolish 20 constitutional offices, it is free to abolish offices which are the creatures of 21 legislative enactment. The case held that the reduction of a constable's salary was 22 an attempt to abolish the single particular constableship of a multi-township 23 county, contrary to the provisions of Nev. Const. Art. IV, Sec. 25 guaranteeing a 24 uniform system of township government. In this matter, the abolition of a single 25 constable office out of the many in Clark County would also violate the Nev. 26 Const. Art IV, Sec. 25. County of Clark, 97 Nev. 260; Masto, supra. C. Premature Enforcement Violates Prohibition Against Vagueness 27 28 As previously stated, Defendant’s answering argument is conflicting. If NRS 258.010(3), (3)(b), is clear on its face as Defendant would argue, then it is 7

1 both a “local” and “special” law enacted to regulate the county business of the Las 2 Vegas Township and its Constable’s Office as it existed for the incumbent on May 3 28, 1979 with Clark County and Las Vegas Township being the only entities 4 meeting the requirements on that date. 5 If, however, as Defendant argues, it is not a special or local law, then 6 a second, and equally reasonable interpretation arises that Defendant’s abolition 7 of the Office cannot become effective until after Plaintiff, as the present incumbent, 8 “does not seek, or is defeated for, reelection.” Under Defendant’s argument, both of the above interpretations could 9 10 be reasonable, and the lack of clarity in identifying those situations subsequent to 11 1979 where an incumbent facing the abolition of the office would be entitled to 12 seek reelection, is unconstitutionally vague. An outgrowth of the Due Process Clause[s] of the Fifth and 13 14 Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, State v. Castaneda, 126 15 Nev. ___, 245 P.3d 550, 553 (2010), the Nevada Supreme Court has held that 16 "[v]agueness may invalidate a [] law ... (1) if [the statute] 'fails to provide a person 17 of ordinary intelligence fair notice of what is prohibited'; or (2) if it 'is so 18 standardless that it authorizes or encourages seriously discriminatory 19 enforcement.'" Id., quoting Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project, 561 U.S. ___, 20 130 S. Ct. 2705, 2718 (2010). D. Premature Enforcement Denies Equal Protection 21 22 Incorporating the argument and applicable law above, the county 23 ordinance itself is unconstitutional, is based on an unconstitutional statute, violates 24 the Nev.Const.Art IV, Sec. 25 (uniform township government), and violates the 25 Equal Protection of an incumbent in 2014-2015 of an abolished office to seek 26 reelection similarly to the Constable in 1979 and current remaining Constables. 27 28 NRS 258.010(1)(3)(b) states:
(b) Is 700,000 or more, if the board of county commissioners determines that the office of constable is not necessary in one or more townships within the county, it may, by ordinance, abolish the office in those townships, but the abolition

8

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

does not become effective as to a particular township until the constable incumbent on May 28, 1979, does not seek, or is defeated for, reelection.

Clark County Ordinance 2.14.10(b) states:
(b) The board of county commissioners, having made a finding that there is an overlap of duties and functions between the office of constable for the Las Vegas Township and the office of the Sheriff Civil Process Section, hereby finds it is not necessary to maintain the office of constable for the Las Vegas Township and abolishes said office upon the completion of the term of office of the current officeholder at 11:59 p.m. January 4, 2015.

Here again is the duplicity of the situation - because Ordinance

13 8 2.14.10 is not effective, nor enforceable, until “11:59 p.m. January 4, 2015,” 9 under the arguments by the Defendant, NRS 258.010(3)(b) would be construed to

10 allow Plaintiff the choice of not running for office, or otherwise seeking re-election 11 with the risk of defeat before the abolition becomes effective. 12 Yet, it can also be argued by a reasonable person that the language in 13 the ordinance is opposite NRS 258.010(3)(b) and denies Plaintiff Equal Protection 14 by not allowing Plaintiff the choice to seek/not seek re-election similarly to “the 15 constable incumbent on May 28, 1979” - or the current ten (10) Constables. This Court has an absolute “. . . . obligation [] to construe the 16 17 mentioned provisions in such manner as to render them compatible with each 18 other.” State of Nevada v. Rosenthal, 93 Nev. 36, 559 P.2d 830 (1977), cited Guinn 19 v. Legislature of the State of Nevada, 119 Nev. ___, 76 P.3d 22 (2003). Accordingly, the ordinance introduced and enacted based on an 20 21 unconstitutional statute and which denies access to appear on the Ballot in 22 violation of Equal Protection, is void, and the year-in-advance premature 23 enforcement of such an Ordinance is equally void. E. Standard to Grant NRAP 8 Stay 24 25 The district court entered a stay in the case. However, and despite the 26 stay, and the fact the effective date is in 2015, Defendant is attempting to enforce 27 the ordinance a year in advance of its effective date. The standard of review for an 28
13

APP VII:411 (Certified Ordinance).

1 NRAP 8 stay is similar to that of a preliminary injunction. Finkel v. Cashman 2 Professional, Inc., 128 Nev.Adv.Op. 6, ___ P.3d ___ (2012). 3 The district court itself determined that substantial evidence 4 supporting likely success on the merits was present when it examined the 5 Defendant’s agenda notices provided as exhibits and expressed deep concern that 6 the operative documents and proposed agenda item appeared to have been based 7 on a predetermined finding and “foregone conclusion” of a “finding already been
14 8 made” outside of public open meeting. The district court then acknowledged 9 evidence was also present when it raised the specter of the special law and date in

10 NRS 258.010(3) by citing to Clark County v. City of Las Vegas, but erred by 11 finding the statute constitutional. 12 The district court, did, in an abundance of caution, issue a stay on the 13 case, a stay which is being violated by the premature enforcement of the ordinance 14 a year in advance of its effective date. 15 Given the uniqueness of the issues, denial of a stay could result in a 16 defeat of the issue on appeal and cause irreparable harm in contravention of the 17 State Constitution and legislative intent, while a stay at this time will result in 18 minimal cost and burden on the Defendant, as opposed to an increase in cost due 19 to special election should Plaintiff prevail. NRAP 8(c). 20 IV. 21 CONCLUSION WHEREFORE, the Plaintiff prays this Court enters the Order for stay

CANDIDATE FILING PROCESS
Pre-Register Your Candidacy, January 18 - March 14, 2014
Why Pre-Register: If you plan to file in Clark County as a candidate for an office that will be on the
2014 ballot, you are encouraged to pre-register. Electronically providing your filing information before appearing in-person will significantly reduce the time it takes to file because your paperwork will be essentially complete before you arrive. The only additional information you will need to supply in-person will be the office for which you wish to file.

Who Can Pre-Register and When: From January 18, 2014 to March 14, 2014, candidates
may pre-register for district offices voted for wholly within Clark County. Accordingly, offices that are excluded from pre-registering in Clark County are: Representative in Congress, District 4; Governor; Lieutenant Governor; Secretary of State; State Treasurer; State Controller; Attorney General; and State Assembly District 36 .

Can I Change My Information After Pre-Registering: The short answer is yes. The only
reason for submitting your information in advance is to speed-up the filing process. You may make changes online before actually filing for office or when you file in-person.

What If My Residential Address Has Changed: When you pre-register online, you may submit
a current residential address that is different from the one in the Election Department's records. However, you will be required to print a Change of Address Card and submit it to the Election Department so that we can update our records with your current address.

Privacy: Pre-registration information is considered draft information. It will not be available on the
Election Department's website. However, it will be provided to anyone who specifically requests it at any time. After you file for office, all of your filing information will be public and available at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/election/Pages/CandidateFiling.aspx. If you elect not to file for office, your pre-registration information will not be retained.

If I Pre-Register, Am I Still Required to File In-Person: Yes, you are still required to appear
in-person to pay your filing fee, to show identification per NRS 293.177, and to verify and sign your filing forms. For easier and faster filing, bring a printed copy of your pre-registration form.

How Do I Pre-Register Online: Go to http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/vote. Login to the
Registered Voter Services section and select Pre-Register for Candidacy from the menu.

If I Do Not Pre-Register, What Should I Do Instead: To speed the filing process, you should
print, complete, and bring the "2014 Checklist for Candidate Filing" when you appear in-person to file for office. The Checklist is on page 9. You may also find it on the Internet at: http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/election/Documents/2014/Candidate_Checklist.pdf.

Official Candidate Filing Process
When and Where Do I File In–Person: Candidates may file on March 3 - 14, 2014, Monday
through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Pueblo Room, 1st floor, at the Clark County Government Center, 500 Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas. Details are on the next page..

Disqualification

contains a false statement, then that person's name will not be on the ballot and he or she is disqualified from assuming the duties of the office for which he or she was a candidate. If that person's name is on the ballot because the deadline for making ballot changes has passed, then polling places will post signs indicating the candidate is disqualified from entering upon the duties of office.

PUBLIC OBSERVATION OF VOTING
What Is a Public Observer
Description: NRS 293.274, 293.305, 293.730, and NAC 293.245 contain provisions for observation
of voting at polling places by the public. Anyone may observe voting at a polling place, i.e., no credentials are required. An observer must ask for the polling place "Team Leader" when he or she arrives. The Team Leader will direct the observer to a designated location within the polling place where the observer must remain at all times. Limited special provisions are made for the media. NAC 293.245 requires observers to sign a form at the polling place before beginning observation. The form is confirmation that the observer will: (a) Not talk to voters within the polling place; (b) Not use a mobile telephone within the polling place; (c) Not advocate for or against a candidate, political party or ballot question; (d) Not argue for or against or challenge any decisions of county or city election personnel; (e) Not interfere with the conduct of voting; and (f) May be removed from the polling place by the county or city clerk for violating any state laws or regulations.

REGISTERING VOTERS
What Candidates Need to Know About Registering Voters
Obtaining Applications:
The Election Department will provide you with Voter Registration Applications for a nominal fee. If you request more than 50 Applications, you must complete a distribution plan detailing how you intend to distribute the Voter Registration Application forms.

Guidelines: Follow the guidelines below to properly conduct your activities:
! You should make an Application available to everyone, regardless of their political party affiliation (NRS 293.505(8)(a), 293.5235(14)). ! You may help a voter complete an Application if you provide your mailing address and signature in section 13 of the Application (NRS 293.5235(13)), and you:
# #

Do not solicit a vote for or against a question or candidate (NRS 293.505(10)(a)); and Do not speak to a voter about marking his or her ballot for or against a question or candidate (NRS 293.505(10)(b)); and Do not distribute any petition or other material concerning a candidate or question which will be on the next election's ballot (NRS 293.505(10(c))).

#

! If you help a voter complete an Application and if you also keep the Application to turn-in, you must enter your name on the receipt that the voter retains (NRS 293.505(13)(a)). ! You should strongly encourage applicants to personally return their Applications to the Election

Department, either in person or by mail. If you choose to collect and submit Applications yourself, return them to the Clark County Election Department within 10 days. All Applications must be submitted by the registration deadline (May 10, 2014 for the Primary Election and October 4, 2014 for the General Election).
! You may not alter, deface or destroy a completed Application that an applicant has signed, except to make changes at the voter’s request (NRS 293.505(13)(b), 293.5235(15)). ! You may not falsify or cause an Application to be falsified and you may not give money or other compensation to another for a falsified Application (NRS 293.800). ! You may not provide compensation for registering voters that is based upon the total number of

voters a person registers or the total number of voters a person registers in a particular political party (NRS 293.805).
! You may not represent yourself to be a Field Registrar or try to exercise the duties of a Field Registrar when you are not a Field Registrar (NRS 293.505(9)). ! Using or threatening to use any force, intimidation, coercion, violence, restraint, or undue influence in connection with voter registration is a category E felony (NRS. 293.710, as amended by A.B. 82 of the 2011 legislative session).

More Information: To learn more about registering voters in Clark County, you should attend a class
conducted by the Election Department. Call 455-0076 for more information. Also see NRS 293.505, 293.5235, 293.710 (as amended by A.B. 82 of the 2011 legislative session), 293.800, and 293.805. 16

MAIL (ABSENTEE) BALLOTS
What Candidates Need to Know About Mail (Absentee) Ballots
What Is Mail (Absentee) Voting: Mail ballots accommodate voters who cannot or do not wish to vote in-person during early voting or on Election Day. After the Election Department processes the request, the voter will be mailed voting materials that include a ballot and voting instructions. The Election Department BEGINS mailing voting materials as follows: (a) To Nevada addresses, 20 days before Election Day; (b) To out-of-state addresses, approximately 40 - 45 days before Election Day. How to Request a Mail Ballot: To vote by mail, a voter must make a written request each
calendar year and the Election Department must receive it by the Tuesday before Election Day, no later than 5:00 p.m. You may use the Election Department’s form or supply the required information on a piece of paper. You must sign all requests (if you cannot sign because of a disability, you may use a signature stamp pursuant to NRS 426.257). No one may request a mail ballot on behalf of another, even with a “Power of Attorney” (NRS 293.313). You may deliver your request in person, send it by mail or fax it.

Obtaining Mail Ballot/Absentee Request Forms: The Election Department will give you up to
50 Mail Ballot/Absentee Request forms at no charge. If you need more, you must reproduce them yourself, preferably on card or index stock. Please note postal machinery may damage thinner paper and render it unreadable. If that should happen, the requestor will not be sent a mail ballot.

Distributing Mail Ballot/Absentee Request Forms: As part of your campaign, you may
distribute Mail Ballot/Absentee Request forms door-to-door, at a table where voters may pick them up, at a rally, or you may include reproductions of the form in a mailing. You may not “collect” completed forms and bring them en masse to the Election Department. If you distribute forms, you may adhere proper postage and ask voters to mail them directly to the Election Department. If your mailer contains a request form, follow the guidelines below:
! ! ! !

Use the Election Department’s form, approved by the Nevada Secretary of State. The Election Department must approve any modifications to the request form. Your mailer must clearly state that you or your campaign provided the request form. Forms must be addressed to the Election Department, i.e., they may not be addressed to your campaign headquarters and then mailed or delivered to the Election Department.

If you mail more than 500 Mail Ballot/Absentee Request forms during the period starting 6 months before Election Day, you must provide written notification to the Election Department at least 14 days before your mailing. You may not conduct a mailing of Mail Ballot/Absentee Requests forms after the 21st day before Election Day. To avoid problems, set up an appointment with the Election Department to coordinate your mailing (call 455-2944). The Election Department will keep all information confidential. At your request, the Election Department will “track” the return of Mail Ballot/Absentee Request forms. Keep in Mind:
! !

The Election Department automatically sends mail ballots to all registered voters in “Mailing Precincts.” Call 455-2944 for a list.

On the Internet, you may find who has requested a mail ballot and who has returned a voted mail ballot for a current election at: http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/election/Pages/MB_PublicRequest.aspx ! See NRS 293.309-340 for more information. 17

BALLOTS
Order
Order of Offices, Names and Questions in Federal/State Elections: Partisan federal,
state and county offices appear first, nonpartisan state and county offices follow, and ballot questions are last (NRS 293.268). Candidates’ names are in alphabetical order by office and must meet legal requirements for the use of given names, surnames and nicknames (NRS 293.256, 293.2565,293.263, 293.265, 293.267). You may vote for “None of These Candidates,” in presidential and statewide contests (NRS 293.269). Nevada does not permit write-in candidates (NRS 293.270).

Candidates with the Same Name: If two or more candidates have the same given name and
surname, then their order on the ballot will depend on the following: (a) If none of the candidates is an incumbent, the middle names or initials, if any, of the candidates must be included; (b) If one of the candidates is an incumbent, the incumbent's name must be listed first and the word “Incumbent” must appear next to it (293.2565(2)).

Why a Candidate or Office May or May not Appear on a Ballot
Partisan Contests:
!

If more than one Democratic candidate has filed for an office and at least one other candidate not from that party has filed for the same office, then the Democratic candidates will appear on the Primary ballot and the winner will go forward to the General Election. (NRS 293.260(3)) If more than one Republican candidate has filed for an office and at least one other candidate not from that party has filed for the same office, then the Republican candidates will appear on the Primary ballot and the winner will go forward to the General Election. (NRS 293.260(3)) If three or more candidates from the same major party (Democrat or Republican) file for an office and no other candidate files for that office, then the two candidates who receive the most votes will go forward to the General Election UNLESS one of the candidates receives a majority of the votes (50% +1). In that case, only the candidate with the majority of votes will go forward to the General Election. (NRS 293.260(4)(a)) If more than two candidates file for a nonpartisan office, then that contest will appear on the Primary ballot and the two candidates who receive the most votes will go forward to the General Election. (NRS 293.260(5)(c)) If only one candidate files for a nonpartisan office, then that contest will appear on the Primary ballot and if the candidate receives at least one vote, he/she will be declared elected. This DOES NOT apply to the Nevada Supreme Court. If only one candidate files for a seat on the Supreme Court, then the Nevada Constitution requires that the candidate go forward unopposed to the General Election. (NRS 293.260(5)(b), Nevada Const. Art. 6, §3)

!

!

Nonpartisan Contests:
!

!

Special District Contests (Moapa Valley Water District, Virgin Valley Water District, Moapa Valley TV Maintenance District, and Overton Power District):
!

If a candidate is unopposed in seeking election for a Special District office, that candidate must be declared elected without a formal election. (Special Acts Chap. 100, §8(4); Special Acts Chap. 477,
§7(4); NRS 318.09523)

!

Special District offices only appear in the General Election. (Special Acts Chap. 100, §5(2); Special Acts
Chap. 477, §5(1); NRS 318.095(1))

ELECTION RESULTS
Unofficial Results on Election Night
After the polls close at 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, polling place officials bring the results to the central tabulation facility at the Clark County Election Center in North Las Vegas (see page 58). The Election Day results are tabulated along with early voting and mail ballot results. Provisional ballots are not included in the unofficial election night results.

Where to Find Results
After all the polling places in Nevada have closed, unofficial election night results will begin appearing on the Internet at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/vote. Updates occur about every 30 minutes. “Refresh” (Internet Explorer) to see the most current data. Past election results are also available on the above-referenced website. In addition, Clark County will post election night results as they are tabulated on cable Channel 4.

Official, Final Election Results
The County Commissioners must “certify” the election results by the sixth working day after Election Day (NRS 293.387 and 293.393). The final results will include the provisional ballots that were actually counted.

EARLY VOTING
What Candidates Need to Know About Early Voting
Campaigning: The rules differ for early voting and Election Day. During early voting, allowable
campaigning will depend on the type of property on which the early voting site is located:
!

Private Property: If the voting site is located on PRIVATE PROPERTY (mall, supermarket, shopping center, etc.), electioneering is not allowed on the owner’s property without the owner’s permission (NRS 293.3572). Public Property: If the voting site is located on PUBLIC PROPERTY, electioneering is not allowed within 100 feet of the voting area (NRS 293.361). Election workers will post "Distance Marker" signs at the 100 foot limit to distinguish the boundaries.

!

What Is Early Voting: Since 2000, more people in Clark County have voted before Election Day
than on Election Day, primarily as a result of Clark County’s Early Voting Program (mail/absentee ballots also account for a small percentage). In the 2012 elections, 88 early voting sites were distributed throughout the entire County. The many neighborhood early voting sites provide eligible voters an opportunity to cast their ballot at a time and place convenient for them. Sites include shopping malls, supermarkets, libraries and community centers.

Who May Vote Early and Where: In Federal/State Elections, all voters registered in Clark County
may vote before Election Day at any early voting site. In Municipal Elections, voters registered within the specific boundaries of an incorporated city (Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas, Mesquite or North Las Vegas) may vote at an early voting site within their own city. Early voting sites are either “long-term" or “neighborhood” (short-term).
!

Long-Term Sites: At these sites, early voting is conducted at the same location for long durations, e.g., the entire 14 days of early voting or 5 - 7 day periods. They are usually in hightraffic areas, such as major shopping malls, Election Department offices or City Clerks’ offices. The sites have 20 to 40 touch-screen voting machines. Neighborhood Sites: These are short-term sites, i.e., early voting is conducted at an individual location for one to five days and then moves on. The sites are in smaller facilities (local supermarkets, libraries, community centers, etc.) and ensure all voters in the County have access to a site located in their neighborhood. These sites have 6 to 15 touch-screen voting machines.

!

When Early Voting Occurs: It begins the Saturday, 17 days before Election Day, and continues
everyday for 14 days, ending the Friday before Election Day:
! !

May 24 - June 6, 2014: Early voting for the June 10 Federal/State Primary Election October 18 - 31, 2014: Early voting for the November 4 Federal/State General Election

Turnout and Results: Daily early voting turnout (total voters at each site) will be available every
night after 10:00 p.m. on the Internet at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/vote. For a current election, you may also find on the Internet exactly who voted early and at which site at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/election/Pages/ev_turnoutdata.aspx.

POSTING LOGS
What Is a Posting Log and Who May View It
What Is a Posting Log: NRS 293.301 requires Posting Logs to be available as public information
at every polling place on Election Day. Posting Logs alphabetically list voters, by precinct, at a particular polling place and include the voters’ name, address and party. Posting Logs show who voted in-person on Election Day at the polling place during four specific time periods. Clerks prepare Posting Logs by placing a check next to the name of each individual who signs the precinct register and votes in person. In addition, one separate posting log for each precinct will show both who voted early in-person before Election Day and who voted by mail/absentee ballot up to the Friday before Election Day. Each precinct will have one set of five Posting Logs.

Who May View Posting Logs: After polling place officials make Posting Logs available to the
public, ANYONE inside the polling place may examine them to see who did or did not vote in the precincts for that location. Posting Logs must remain inside the polling place.

Procedures and Restrictions
When and Where They Are Posted: Polling place officials will make Posting Logs available at a
table near the entrance to the polling area at the following times:
! ! ! ! ! !

7:00 a.m.: The EARLY VOTING POSTING LOG will show who voted early in-person before Election Day and who voted by mail/absentee ballot up to the Friday before Election Day. 9:00 a.m.: The FIRST COPY will show who signed the precinct register from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. 12:00 Noon: The SECOND COPY will show who signed the precinct register from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. 3:00 p.m.: The THIRD COPY will show who signed the precinct register from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. 5:00 p.m.: The FOURTH AND FINAL COPY will show who signed the precinct register from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. After 5:00 p.m.: NO POSTING LOGS are prepared or posted.

Unlawful Acts: Per NRS 293.301, it is a misdemeanor to remove, tear, mark or deface a Posting Log
with the intent to falsify or prevent others from readily ascertaining the name, address or political affiliation of any voter or the fact that a voter has or has not voted.
