    Governor Steve Sisolak signed an emergency directive banning gatherings of 10 or more people in public spaces including parks, social clubs, libraries and parking lots. It is the latest in a series of orders forcing “aggressive social distancing” to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus.

    Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, the state’s top elections official, on Tuesday announced her office would mail absentee ballots to all of Nevada’s active voters, who will mark their candidate choices at home before returning ballots in the mail or at a designated county drop-off location.
    Cegavske says the virus-prevention effort will only apply to the June 9 primary, and not November’s general election.
    According to the press release issued March 24, “active registered voters in Nevada will be mailed an absentee ballot for the primary election.  No action or steps, such as submitting an absentee ballot request application, will be required by individual voters in order to receive a ballot in the mail. Voters will be able to mark their ballot at home and then return it by mail using a postage-prepaid envelope or by dropping it off in person at a designated county location.”

    The Humboldt County Commissioners approved a letter which would request Gov. Steve Sisolak’s intervention to ask for assistance from the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and to engage the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to ensure that all tribal marijuana dispensaries meet the requirements of the state of Nevada for health and safety. The letter was approved at the March 23 special meeting.
    The county and the city had adopted local zoning ordinances prohibiting marijuana establishments. However, last year, the Winnemucca Indian Colony announced plans to build a dispensary on its lands located at Hansen Street and South Highland Drive. This meant the city had to amend local zoning ordinances to allow dispensaries.
