Voting Rights Advocates: DMV Is Breaking the Law by Failing to Register Voters

March 11, 2016 | | The Las Vegas Sun |
The advocates' letter threatens legal action if the state doesn’t cooperate.
 
Scott Novakowski, an attorney with Demos, said the groups hope to come to an understanding with the state and map out short-term and long-term solutions for the problems.
 
Nevada still is mired in a lawsuit filed in 2012 by some of the same groups concerning a different part of the law, which requires public assistance agencies to register people to vote. Novakowski said negotiations on that matter are ongoing.
 
While such issues aren’t unique to Nevada, voting rights advocates say they pose more of a problem here.
 
“Nevada is, I think just looking at procedures, one of the worst" states, Nowakowski said. "Most of their procedures are facially noncompliant.”
