Here are the statewide ballot measures appearing on your November ballot:
Equal Rights Amendment: Proposes to amend the Nevada Constitution to guarantee equal rights.
Nevada Top-Five Ranked Choice Voting Initiative: If enacted, this initiative changes Articles 5 and 15 of Nevada's Constitution for Congressional, Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Controller and State Legislator elections, eliminating partisan primaries and establishing an open top-five primary election and a rank-choice voting general election. For these offices, all candidates and voters participate in a single primary election regardless of party affiliation or non-affiliation. The top five finishers advance to the general election, and the general election winner is determined by rank-choice voting: General election voters rank the candidates in order of preference from first to last, if they wish to rank more than their first preference. As traditionally, a candidate receiving first-choice votes of more than 50% wins. If no candidate is the first choice of more than 50%, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated. And each voter who had ranked the now-eliminated candidate as their first choice, has their single vote transferred to their next highest choice candidate. This tabulation process repeats until the one candidate with more than 50% support is determined as the winner.
Minimum Wage Amendment: Proposes to amend the Nevada Constitution to prospectively increase the required minimum wage paid to employees.
