Clark County Election Week Update

Watch our calendar and send event announcements to especially when you see opportunities for our candidates.  

Ballots must be turned in by Tuesday, August 5th!

Four out of five of your neighbors have not voted—which gives you a real opportunity!  Just look through your contact list, make a few calls and you will boost our numbers.  When voter turn-out is low, each new voter has even more influence.  They will vote if you ask them.  This is a super-easy task to do during the next two days.  Please make that list now and start calling.  They will thank you (I’m totally serious).

To learn about Republican candidates look for their contact information here.  Also check out CVTV for forums and interviews.  Click on both the “Files” & “Folder” links (you don’t have to buy a copy). has Sheriff interviewshere and a summary video of the NAMI forum here.

One of the things your Clark County Republican Party is doing to Get Out The Vote is a Radio spot on 970AM.  Have you have heard it?  Check it out here.  We have another ad that will run only on election day.
