Janine Hansen is an Independent American
Candidate for Nevada
Secretary of State
The Secretary of State serves as the Chief Elections officer of the State of Nevada. As Chief Elections Officer the Secretary of State oversees election integrity in Nevada. The 2020 election created great concern over the honesty of our election process in Nevada.
The 2020 problems in Nevada’s elections began with the passage of AB4 by the Nevada Legislature in the 2020 Second Special Session. AB4 mandated mail in voting for all active voters and allowed ballot harvesting. The excuse for these measures was that the Governor had declared a state of emergency because of Covid 19. These monumental changes opened Nevada to election fraud in the November 2020 election.
In 2021 the Nevada Legislature placed into Nevada Statutes AB321 which included all the bad features of the AB4 from the 2020 Special Session. AB321 included ballot harvesting (which had previously been illegal in Nevada), universal mail-in voting, electronic rather than human signature verification, with virtually no safeguards to ensure that returned ballots are legitimate.
As Secretary of State I would advocate for changes by the Legislature in the Nevada Election Law to return to our election process the safeguards of previous years which provided Nevada with one of the safest and most legitimate election processes in the nation.
In addition, I would publicly expose the critical fact that the Legislature, by mandating Automatic Voter Registration at the DMV, made sure there is no way to distinguish a driver’s license of a citizen from a driver’s authorization card of a non-citizen (illegal alien). This means that the Secretary of State and any local election official has no way of determining by checking the number on a driver’s authorization card or driver’s license if the person registering to vote may not be a citizen.
Janine Hansen has been an advocate for the Citizens of Nevada, Families and Taxpayers at the Nevada Legislature for many years. See her testimony opposing AB321 the devastating bill facilitating election fraud passed in 2021.

Assembly Ways and Means
We oppose AB321. The fiscal note from the Secretary of State’s office is over $11 million dollars for the Biennia, but the cost of AB321 will be much greater. The United States was founded as a Republic with principles of democracy demonstrated through our elections.
What we have seen witnessed around the world in many other countries is that when people lose confidence in the integrity of their elections a breakdown of the peaceful democratic process gives way to violence. This is born of deep frustration because people believe that their vote doesn’t count and there is no peaceful recourse.
Because the Democrats have a majority in both houses of the Legislature and the Governor does not mean it is wise to change the time honored election process in Nevada into one which mirrors California’s. Almost half of the voting population in Nevada does not believe we had an honest election in 2021.
When you choose to implement all mail in voting, ballot harvesting, electronic rather than human signature verification, you simply perpetuate and exacerbate the feelings of distrust in the election process. This in the end will not help to secure perpetual rule by the Democrats.
One problem in our law that creates distrust is the fact that in NRS 483.291 4c requires driver’s authorization cards, “Be numbered from the same sequence of numbers as a driver’s license.” So there is no way to distinguish a driver’s license of a citizen from a drivers authorization card of a possible non-citizen. This means that the Secretary of State and any local election official has no way of determining by checking the number on a drivers authorization card or drivers license if the person registering to vote may not be a citizen. This is by legislative design and handicaps the Secretary of State and local election officials in checking and possibly removing non-citizens from our voter registration. This further creates distrust of the election process.
AB321 enshrines in our law that people registering to vote at the DMV do not have to show proof of identity or residency the first time they vote for federal elections.
Please do not squander any trust left in our election process. Vote No on AB321.
