Nevada has once again improved its voter accessibility according to a new report from the Pew Center on the States, which evaluates each state’s election websites, points out best practices and offers recommendations for improvements. Nevada’s overall score for 2010 improved from 2008, scoring fourth in the nation for usability. Notably, we have already made huge strides in advancing our elections website since this survey was conducted in 2010, so the content is even more relevant, up-to-date and easy to find. We are always seeking to enhance the public’s access to elections-related information, and our campaign finance reforms that go into effect January 2012 will further help us reach our goal. Although not considered in the Pew survey, all contribution & expense reports and financial disclosure statements must now be filed online, which will allow public access all of it through a user-friendly database, providing a level of disclosure and transparency that Nevadans have not had until now.
