Looking for our General Election Voter Guide? You can find it here.

The Las Vegas DSA Electoral Committee was actively engaged in the 2020 election cycle via our work with the Bernie 2020 Nevada Team. We are proud of that work and are confident in the impact our organizing — rooted in community building and solidarity — had on the outcome of the 2020 Nevada Democratic Caucus.

Since that time, the focus of our Chapter’s organizing has been around mutual and the impact of COVID-19. We are, however, committed to engaging with the electoral process, given the profound impact the outcomes of elections have on working peoples’ lives. With that comes a commitment to being informed voters, and the Electoral Committee has convened a working group to research candidates and provide recommendations for our members — and the community at large — to consider when they are casting their ballots. THESE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE NOT ENDORSEMENTS, and we have not formally engaged in an endorsement process for this primary election cycle. We are only making recommendations in contested primary races.

Call to Action: Tell Congress to Pass H.R. 6515

The federal government must take urgent action to protect renters, prevent unprecedented displacement, and to guard against 2008-style disastrous real estate speculation bonanza.
