NEVADA SENATE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS STATEMENT ON RECALLS’ COURT RULING

Las Vegas, NV – Today, the efforts to recall Senators Joyce Woodhouse and Nicole Cannizzaro are one step closer to being dead. A Clark County District Court upheld the constitutionality of requests from voters to have their names removed from the recall petitions. Thousands of signature removal forms collected from voters in the districts will now go to the Secretary of State and Clark County Registrar for a full review. Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford and the Nevada Senate Democratic Caucus released the following statement:

“These recalls have always been nothing more than an attempt by Nevada Republicans to reverse the results of the 2016 election. Thousands of voters across Senate Districts 5 and 6 requested to have their names removed from the recall petitions because they were misled and misinformed by Republican recall proponents. We are grateful that the court ruled in favor of these voters’ rights to remove their names from the petitions. This ruling makes it clear the Republicans did not collect enough signatures on either recall petition to call for special elections in District 5 or District 6. Once the full review has been conducted, we have great confidence that these recalls will fail.”
