Ballot Questions

Q1

Yes

Question 1, Board of Regents: PLAN Action supports this measure which would remove the constitutional status of the Board of Regents.The ballot question will provide transparency, accountability, and oversight by modernizing the governance structure of Nevada’s System of Higher Education and the Board of Regents.

Q2

Yes

Question 2, Marriage Equality: PLAN Action supports Question 2, which seeks to amend Nevada’s Constitution to remove gendered and discriminatory language around marriage. Though marriage equality is secured under the law, Nevada’s Constitution does not yet reflect how Nevadan’s currently feel about this issue. Nevada should always protect fundamental civil rights for all people and fight discrimination wherever it exists.

Q3

Yes

Question 3, Pardons Board: PLAN Action supports this measure to require the State Board of Pardons Commissioners to meet four times per year, allowing petitioners more opportunities to go before the board and reduce the current backlog. In addition, Question 3 will allow board members to submit an issue for consideration, and removes the opportunity for a veto by the Governor by requiring only a majority to vote in favor.

Q4

Yes

Question 4, Voter Rights: PLAN Action supports adding the state’s declaration of voters’ rights to the Nevada Constitution. We believe that our democracy is most vibrant when as many people are participating as possible. Question 4 protects our system of democracy and guarantees voting rights to registered voters in the state.

Q6

Yes

Question 6, Renewable Energy Standards: PLAN Action supports this measure, which requires the state reach a 50% Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) by 2030, to ensure more clean energy is brought to Nevada to help fight climate change. This amendment is an essential first step in moving toward 100% RPS.

* There is no Question 5 in 2020, Question 6 retained it’s same name from the 2018 election.
