    Secretary Miller,

    Yesterday, I downloaded a copy of the registered voter file for Clark County, NV.
    The file does not list all the voters by minor party affiliation. For example, it does not list the Green party affiliated voters, last estimated at 2000-3000 voters for Clark County.
    By failing to list party affiliation, there is no way to publicly track their numbers as the Greens seek ballot access.

    I spoke with a member of your staff, Justice W. via phone yesterday and he told me your office made the decision to lump all the minor party affiliations into an “other” column.
    Though this may be convenient for your process, it misrepresents the affiliations the voters themselves have made and gives them no way of tracking their numbers and leads to potential distrust of your office by the voters.

    I respectfully request that you list all the voters by their stated party affiliation in the voter file.
    It would be the most honest and transparent way to maintain the data rather than manually manipulate it by changing the affiliations to some “other” category your office invented, which prevents the true number of affiliations from being publicly known.

The Lee family has lived on Jackson Street in San Francisco for decades and now is being evicted under the Ellis Act. Friends, politicians and religious leaders gathered at their home to show their support for the elderly couple and stand against evictions of longtime residents." Photo: Brant Ward, The SF Chronicle
