NEVADA

In 2018, Nevada made history when it became the first U.S. state with a female majority in the legislature. The female majority passed groundbreaking legislation like paid family sick leave, the bill nicknamed the “Trust Nevada Women” Act, and a series of laws related to domestic violence, sexual trafficking, and sexual assault.

So, why are we working in Nevada? While the number of elected women paints a rosy picture, the number of women voting is far lower.

 

  • Based on data from the 2016 and 2018 elections, Nevada ranked 46th in the country concerning the percentage of women registered to vote, which was nearly 8% points less than the national average. 

  • Nevada women also vote in lower numbers than the national average. Just 49.1% of Nevada women voted in 2016 and 2018, placing the state 45th in the country for women voting and putting it well below the national average of 54.4%.

  • Latinos make up nearly a third of Nevada’s population. Yet they are less than 18% of registered voters.

Let’s get to work and make sure all Nevada’s women vote!
