Who We Are:

Since 1994 a group of progressive and civic-minded individuals with intense interest in Southern Nevada politics, gathers to endorse candidates for various offices up for election. The Las Vegas Night Beat has published those results and our committee makes them available online at NevadaImpact.com

This year for the Primary, early voting begins May 26 and runs through June 8 with regular voting taking place on Tuesday, June 12. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The deadline to register without having to appear in person is Saturday, May 15. In office and online registration can be done until May 22 at the Clark County Election offices or online at Nevada Secretary of State’s website. Extended online registration can be done May 23-24 but only at the Secretary of State’s website. http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/election/pages/dates.aspx

This list of endorsements is published to help the LGBTQ community be better informed about candidates and to impact the outcome of the election. Our panel has the best interest of the LGBTQ community at heart, but your priorities can best be voiced by doing your own research.

Please understand that many races are not listed because there is no Primary. Many races may only have a Republican or a Democrat Primary. In many cases, we may endorse one party’s candidate in the Primary but endorse an opposing party’s candidate in the general.

Races which do not appear on this endorsement list will appear on the general ballot.
