Filing Dates for the Nevada Special Election in the 2nd Congressional District
On May 19, 2011, a Nevada state court ruled in Nevada Republican Party v. State of Nevada, case no. 11 OC 001471B, that Nevada's Secretary of State may not place members of major or minor political parties on the special general election ballot until candidates are designated by their respective political parties. The Nevada Republican and Democratic state central committees will select their parties' nominees at Special Party Caucuses on June 18, 2011, and June 25, 2011, respectively. Due to this development, the Commission is issuing filing dates for these caucuses.\1\ Committees required to file reports in connection with the Republican and Democratic caucuses shall file a 12-day Pre-Caucus report.
