HRC’s Commitment to Nevada

Equality voters, including Nevada’s 700,000+, are a voting bloc of demographically and geographically diverse Americans who are united by the advancement of LGBTQ+ equality. Equality Voters are younger, more racially diverse and more female than the general electorate, they recognize and trust the HRC brand, and they are more likely to identify with issue-specific organizations than to candidates or political parties.

Across the country, HRC works every day to elect pro-equality leaders who support policies that will support the rights and lives of LGBTQ+ people. During the 2020 election cycle, HRC field staff recruited 5,800 individual volunteers across the country who completed 28,500 hours of voter contact in over 2,650 volunteer events.
