NFA endorsements for primary elections

The state's ongoing financial crisis -- and the decisions made in 2011 by the state legislature and the Regents to address this crisis -- will continue to have a dramatic impact on the Nevada System of Higher Education and its faculty for years to come.

The NFA Political Action Committee therefore urges NSHE faculty, staff, students and all Nevada citizens to vote for candidates who value quality, affordable higher education and who have demonstrated the intelligence and tenacity to make a difference in 2011. We believe that the list of endorsed candidates below offers those qualities.

(Note that this is a list only of candidates endorsed on a continuing basis -- ie, past endorsees who have performed well in office -- or those who particularly stand out to warrant a pre-primary endorsement. Races not listed are ones in which we have not yet made an endorsement.)

Early voting begins this Saturday, May 22, and runs through June 5. Election day is June 8. To find where to vote visit the Clark County Department of Elections site.
