“State Democratic Party to SOS: Voter registration deadline is illegal”

Jon Ralston:

Nevada Democrats have notified the secretary of state that Saturday’s voter registration deadline violates federal law because it falls outside of a mandated 30-day window before the election.

If the SOS does not extend the deadline to Tuesday, the Democrats are prepared to take legal action to force the state to comply with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, the letter says. Saturday is 31 days before Election Day, and the next two days are a weekend day and a holiday (Columbus Day). Both Barbara Cegavske, the SOS, and Adam Laxalt, the attorney general who would have to defend any suit, are Republicans…

Here is the letter.

I have asked for a response from the secretary of state.
