Abstract Plaintiffs claim that a universal mail voting plan violates the right to vote (1st and 14th Amendments). They further claim that the plan violates the Purcell principle, violates Article I, § 4 of the Constitution, and violates Article IV, § 4 as well as the Nevada Constitution. State constitutional claims: The universal mail voting plan violates the right to vote (article 2, §1; art. 1, §§ 8,9) Amendments). The court rejected the request for a preliminary injunction against an all-mail election for the upcoming June 9, 2020 Nevada primary. Specifically, the court held that the Plaintiffs had no standing, but that even if they established standing, Defendants’ interests in protecting the health and safety of Nevada’s voters outweigh any burden on the plaintiffs’ right to vote, especially when that burden is premised on a speculative claim of voter fraud resulting in dilution of votes.
