Nevada Question 5, Automatic Voter Registration via DMV Initiative (2018)

Encouraging more Nevadans to take an active role in their community and voting is a worthy objective.  However, we all know too well good intentions don’t always lead to good results.

I support governor Sandoval when he says “ IP1 fails this test because it extinguishes a fundamental, individual choice—the right of eligible voters to decide for themselves whether they desire to apply to register to vote—forfeiting this basic decision to state government. … the core freedom of deciding whether one wishes to initiate voter registration belongs to the individual, not the government.”

I will vote no on Question 5
