History
After the Board of County Commissioners approved the launch of a Home Rule Charter process, voters elected 15 freeholders from more than 100 candidates in November, 2013.

The common goal of freeholders was to create a better, more effective government for Clark County.

They finished their work in time to put a proposed Home Rule Charter on the ballot in the November General Election, saving the cost of a special election.

 

Why Is It Better?
The county government, designed by the freeholders, is better than what we have because it:

  • Increases representation but cuts salaries so the cost for five council members will be no more than the current cost for three.
  • Allows voters in each of four districts to choose their own district representative. The entire county elects a chairperson.
  • Protects us from any one politician or branch of government becoming too powerful by separating the legislative and administrative responsibilities.
  • Gives us, the voters, more local control by providing our citizens the power to put local initiatives and referenda on the ballot.

 

Take your power back!

Vote YES on the County Charter this fall in November!

  • Why Vote Yes?

    Your "Yes" vote provides important reforms to our current form of government including

    ** local initiative and referendum,

    ** council elections by district, and

    ** safeguards to protect taxpayers from one politician or branch of government becoming too powerful.

    Because politicians' salaries are cut, the Charter increases local representation without increasing the cost of government.
