RENO – The highly respected Heritage Foundation recently released its Election Integrity Scorecard. According to Heritage, “the scorecard ranks states based on how well they protect the security and integrity of the election process.” Nevada finished 50th out of 51 listings, following immediately behind California.

“Nevada voters deserve so much better. This is such an embarrassment for our state. Governor Sisolak’s terrible leadership at the behest of progressive pressure from legislators in Carson City on election integrity has left gaping holes in our system and left the very process of voting exposed and vulnerable to more fraud,” said Guy Nohra, Republican candidate for Governor.

“Look, I come at the issue of free and secure elections so sincerely and earnestly. As a young child growing up in war-torn Lebanon, I watched my mother hide her cross and risk her life to get through PLO checkpoints to vote because it was that important to her – to risk it all,” said Nohra. “Ensuring fair and honest elections instills trust and faith in our democracy. We must fully investigate all legitimate claims of voter fraud, enact voter ID, require robust signature matching, enhance cybersecurity and modernize our voting infrastructure.

“As a businessman, I tackled tough challenges, such as being a part of helping to find cures for cancer. Nevada voters are demanding change to secure our elections, and I can deliver. Voters can rest assured that when I am Governor, Nevada will have the most secure and honest elections in the country.”
