We'll be registering voters via door-to-door outreach in Reno. Thousands of voters have been purged from the rolls in Nevada, mostly Democrats. Unsurprisingly this also affects typically disenfranchised populations. This is...not ideal.
We'll be working with the Nevada Democratic Party, specifically the Washoe County Dems. We're collaborating directly with their out of state volunteer infrastructure and their regional field staff.
